We are pleased to be a part of Foglifter's, the San Francisco Bay Area’s premier non-profit LGBTQ+ literary arts press, Queer Home CookOUT Tour. Foglifter road trips across the country to collaborate with local bookstores and the contributing writers of the Home is Where You Queer Your Heart anthology in their own hometowns for a reading. These contributors have invited a roster of local queer and trans talent to celebrate the anthology's themes of chosen family and community. Hub City Bookshop will sell the anthology and participating author books at the event, as well. Featured readers include Sarah Cooper, Jules Hogan, Miah Jeffra, Killian Conahan, our very own Assitant Director of Hub City Press, Kate McMullen, and other special guests.
This event will be held in-person at Hub City Bookshop located at 186 W Main Street on July 30th from 6:30-8:00pm. The event is free and open to the public; please register at the link below to attend.

Home is Where You Queer Your Heart anthologizes contemporary queer writers and artists creatively thinking through the complex and fluid realities of home in the U.S. and abroad. Curated during the 2020 U.S. presidential election and the COVID-19 pandemic, as the culture shifts into a new normal—and many queer people feel their nation has further precluded them from a place of comfort—poets, essayists, storytellers, and artists remind us that it is at our kitchen tables, in our bedrooms, on our porches that make us who we are.
Foglifter Press is supported by the generosity of the California Arts Council, San Francisco Arts Commission, Horizons Foundation, and Zellerbach Family Foundation. Foglifter was also recently awarded the Whiting Foundation’s Literary Magazine Prize.
