Sally Bellerose Presents FISHWIVES Thurs, Feb 11 at 7 pm --a virtual event

Fishwives is the story of Regina, eighty-nine, and Jackie, ninety. They have been a couple since the 50's, when they met at a lesbian bar. The novel weaves present and past skillfully together, letting us see a lifetime of change through the prism of two lives. There's a cast of colorful supporting characters as well, and the dialogue sparkles. And from the very first page, the abiding love between these two women comes through. This is a joyous, bittersweet, funny, and poignant book--a swift-moving delight to read.

Sally Bellerose is the author of a previous novel, The Girls' Club, which was awarded a Creative Writing Fellowship from the NEA. The manuscript was a finalist for the James Jones Fellowship, the Thomas Wolfe Fiction Prize, The Backspace Scholarship, a Lambda Literary Award, an Independent Publishers Award, and a Golden Crown Literary Society Award. Sally writes about class, sexuality, gender, illness, absurdity, and lately, growing old.
