Book Banter with Robert Fieseler
February 2 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
We are excited to welcome author, Robert Fieseler to Book Banter!
“Fieseler’s work is an essential piece of historical restitution that takes us from 1973 to 2003, when homosexuality was finally decriminalized in Louisiana. Powerfully written and consistently engaging, the book will hopefully shed more light on the gay community’s incredible and tragic journey to equality. A momentous work of sociological and civil rights history.” – Kirkus Reviews, ‘Best Books of the Year’
Tinderbox: The Untold Story of the Up Stairs Lounge Fire and the Rise of Gay Liberation is an essential work of American civil rights history, Tinderbox mesmerizingly reconstructs the 1973 fire that devastated New Orleans’ subterranean gay community.
