And a big thank you to Perry, Sarah, Daniel and Tom for organizing yet another fantastic edition of RBF. It is always a highlight for me. —Jee Leong Koh, Singapore Poetry
Thanks, Perry, for bringing a great crew together for “Investigating Queer Boyhood” and thanks for including me on the panel. It was wonderful afternoon and I left feeling nourished and inspired. Kudos to you and to Michael, Collin and Jim!

Seth Pennington and I were very happy that Joy Exhaustible sold out so quickly at The Rainbow Book Fair. —Bryan Borland, Sibling Rivalry Press
Had a great time this past weekend at The Rainbow Book Fair. I got to meet the folks from OR Books, for whom I created my “yoko ono acorn open my box” last year, and I even got to meet Edmund White. But, of course, the highlight was Brian Centrone’s reading from Erotica, our newest book over at New Lit Salon Press.

High point of the day (and one of the high points of my life) was getting to hear Edmund White read at The Rainbow Book Fair and shaking his hand after.

I had a very good experience. It was my first time there as a vendor and sponsor and I think I got a lot out of it. Absolutely. I’ll be back next year.
—Mark McNease, Kyle Callahan Mysteries, lgbtSr.
Truly enjoyed my day as a reader and exhibitor at the fair, and I more than made back my investment on the table, so I count it a success on all fronts. The organizers and the volunteers were a joy to work with, both prior to and during the event.
—Ellis Avery, The Last Nude
I had a great time meeting, chatting, emceeing some wonderful readings, hearing others, and generally just enjoying the love fest that RBF is. What a wonderful warm group of diverse people meeting towards a wonderful goal each year!!
