Some events at PINK INK are free: There is a reading series organized by Cheryl B. on both Saturday and Sunday. And if you are in the neighborhood on Saturday, stop by and check out our Book Exhibit on the first floor.

Among the many exciting panels lined up for PINK INK are professional development panels such as Saturday's "Flaming Self-Promotion" featuring Dave King, author of The Ha-Ha, and Sunday's "Sex on the Page" featuring Wayne Hoffman, author of Hard, and Rich Merritt, author of Memoirs of a Gay Marine Porn Star. There are also panels on cultural topics such as "The
Book That Made Me Gay," in which James Earl Hardy, Trebor Healey, and other authors share their "first time" with a queer book, and "We're Funny That Way," a humor panel moderated by Bob Smith with recent winner of the Violet
Quill Award, Brian Sloan.
