Join guest speaker and historian activist Jonathan Ned Katz as he uncovers the forgotten story of the radical lesbian activist Eve Adams and her long-lost book Lesbian Love 

Born into a Jewish family in Poland in 1891, Eve Adams emigrated to the United States in 1912, took a new name, befriended anarchists, sold radical publications, and ran lesbian-and-gay-friendly speakeasies in Chicago and New York. Then, in 1925, Adams risked all to write and publish a book titled Lesbian Love, catching the attention of the young J. Edgar Hoover and the US Bureau of Investigation. 

Katz recently published the first ever biography of Eve Adams, The Daring Life and Dangerous Times of Eve Adams, where he recovered the extraordinary story of an early, daring activist. Join this special talk lead by Katz all about Eve Adams and the legacy of her advocacy and courage.
