The She-She Room awaits…

A relatively new space dedicated to lesbian art and culture now resides with Rust Belt Books on Grant Street. It’s called The She-She Room. Rust Belt Books proprietor Kristi Meal describes the mainly word of mouth venue as, “…an unapologetic low-fi evening of art and culture around writing and art of lesbian descent meant to stimulate, antagonize and instigate a focus on sub-cultural arts. It’s more about self-initiating toward an evening of receiving art than who’s doing what. Unpredictable variation is part of an artistic evening.”

The She-She Room returns, meditation continues, poetry is present and let’s throw in a little Brazen-Faced Shakespeare this month! And the Dog Days make for some decadent kickin’ back with a book. What have you been reading lately? – Rust Belt Books

Following is some of the upcoming programming to look forward to at Rust Belt Books and The She-She Room:
