An Evening with Anna Pulley, Kelsey Beyer, and Special Guests

Join us for an evening of kick-ass women featuring the writer and the illustrator of The Lesbian Sex Haiku Book (with Cats!).

Lesbian sex has been confounding people since the dawn of time. What is it that two women do together exactly? The Lesbian Sex Haiku Book (with Cats!), a humorous guide to lesbian sex, dating rituals, and relationships, aims to dispel all myths. Haiku paired with hilarious watercolor illustrations of cats in various stages of sexual awkwardness will enlighten, demystify, remystify, and most importantly entertain as you learn all the aspects involved in girl-on-girl action.
