Join the Lesbian Reading Group (left-bank.com/lesbian-reading-group-0) for a discussion of "Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme," edited by Ivan Coyote and Zena Sharman! In the summer of 2009, butch writer and storyteller Ivan Coyote and gender researcher and femme dynamo Zena Sharman wrote down a wish-list of their favourite queer authors; they wanted to continue and expand the butch-femme conversation. The result is "Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme." The stories in these pages resist simple definitions. The people in these stories defy reductive stereotypes and inflexible categories. The pages in this book describe the lives of an incredible diversity of people whose hearts also pounded for some reason the first time they read or heard the words "butch" or "femme."
