SISTER ARTS wins Lambda Literary Award
Lisa L. Moore's book wins in the LGBT Studies categoryJun 05, 2012
New York, NY – The winners of the 24th Annual Lambda Literary Awards were announced last night in a sold-out gala ceremony hosted by comedienne Kate Clinton at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York City. Author of the groundbreaking Tales of the City books, Armistead Maupin, and seminal influence on second-wave feminism Kate Millett, were the Pioneer Award honorees. Taking place the same week of Book Expo America – the book publishing industry’s largest annual gathering of booksellers, publishers, and others in the industry – the Lambda ceremony brought together over 400 attendees, sponsors, and celebrities to celebrate excellence in LGBT literature. Legendary entertainer Lypsinka gave a special performance at the ceremony, and the VIP After-Party at hotspot Slate was a night to remember with Lady Bunny as DJ.
In the age of English garden design, eighteenth-century women working in the “sister arts” of painting, poetry, and landscape gardening adapted the tradition of the erotic garden to create art with and for other women celebrating everything from classical friendship to erotic love. Lisa L. Moore reveals how these artists used flowers, gardens, and landscapes to express their love for other women.
