I'll be speaking at the Minneapolis AIDS Project Allan Spear Forum on Tuesday, January 10, 2006 at 7 pm (a week from today), but will be heading in earlier to see two old friends -- one from undergrad and one from grad school.
Surprisingly, Minneapolis is one major city I've never visited. So... I need a bit of info on what to do, where to go, etc... I'm sure my friends will show me around, but I'd like to be armed with a bit of info myself.
At the Minneapolis AIDS Project I'll be talking a little about my novel, Down For Whatever, but also about some of the tangent topics that have come from the book: ethnicity and class issues within the LGBT community, health, labels, sex, and others. Should be a fun time.
So if you have friends in the Minneapolis area, please send them out next Tuesday. I've heard there's a few black LGBT book clubs there, some of whom have read DFW.
Or if you've been to the area, let me know some of the places you've visited while there.
