After nearly two decades of political, literary and artistic interventions in San Francisco, writer and activist Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore (author of So Many Ways to Sleep Badly, editor of That’s Revolting! Queer Strategies for Resisting Assimilation) will be leaving the Bay Area this fall. Join us for a special preview of Mattilda’s memoir-in progress, The End of San Francisco, described by Sycamore as a book “about the people and spaces and feelings in moments of losses that have made and unmade me -- my political, cultural, social, ethical, sexual and emotional formations, and their undoing.” The centerpiece of the book is about moving to San Francisco in the early-’90s, and coming of age as a queer rabble-rouser on both coasts. Much of that section, and the next, which starts as the dot-com crash gives way to new perils and possibilities, takes place in the Mission just blocks from Modern Times -- what a perfect place for a special preview reading! Includes refreshments before, and discussion afterwards -- feel free to bring something delicious…
