Hey folks, Tara here. Kris and I are taking a break this week because I left town for a working vacation just as Kris was heading home from GCLS when we would have normally recorded. So, we’re rerunning one of my favourite interviews from my previous podcast, Les Do Books.
Ann Bannon is a keystone in lesbian literature and the impact of her lesbian pulp Beebo Brinker novels can’t be overstated. Her books inspired generations of writers and readers who followed her and her historical perspective is both timeless and vitally important as today’s political landscape grows ever more hostile to LGBTQ people.
