The Very Best of Upcoming Events

5th Annual Rainbow Book Fair, Sue Mengers

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.
