The 5th Annual Rainbow Book Fair (happening Apr 13 at the Holiday Inn in Midtown) is the place to be for quality queer-themed books from more than 100 publishers. Connect with your favorite authors such as Leslea Newman and Natty Soltesz; attend panels on writing and publishing (this year on trans fiction and gay sleuths); listen to live readings at the non-stop poetry salon; learn about forthcoming releases; and purchase books that are difficult (if not impossible) to find anywhere else.
Bette Midler comes to Broadway on Apr 24 at the Booth Theatre in I’ll Eat You Last: A Chat with Sue Mengers. Midler stars in the title role, playing a talent manager who was loved, famed and feared by many major Hollywood power players in the 1970s. The one-woman drama marks Midler’s long-awaited return to the Broadway stage, and as such is bound to be a hot ticket.
