Dr. Kim O’Reilly Reading and Signing We Love You, But You’re Going to Hell at Sundance Bookstore in Reno, NV
March 8, 2019
What a joy to be back in Reno – and at my favorite bookstore! Love this place! Such a warm welcome from Emily, the events manager and others at Sundance. Was great talking to participants afterward, some who were friends, others I met for the first time. I dedicated this presentation, and my book, to Fannie Beynon – a dear friend who passed away recently at 91 years old. Reno was home to her and several in the audience knew Fannie.
I addressed one of the stereotypes covered in my book: Homosexuals Cannot Sustain Long-Term Relationships. I showed a picture of Fannie and told her story of being a devout Catholic, closeted, and in a relationship with her partner, Shirley, for 51 years! I appreciated the opportunity to share my book and Fannie’s story at Sundance Bookstore.
