Outwords Books Welcomes Gregg Shapiro, How to Whistle

Wednesday, August 24 @ 7:00pm

On Wednesday, August 24, Outwords Books will welcome back to Milwaukee acclaimed writer, Gregg Shapiro, who has just released his second collection of short stories, entitled “How to Whistle.”

Whistling has long been used to entertain and to communicate; the short stories of Gregg Shapiro also entertain and convey his skilled recollections of the past. Nostalgia and literature combined. The gay men found in these pages are unrepentantly sardonic: they drink, they indulge, they offer wry comments on friends, family and life. In other words, they are a joy to read.

Gregg Shapiro is a 1999 inductee into Chicago's Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame has published “Lincoln Ave.: Chicago Stories” as well as two previous collection of poetry: “Protection” andGREGG SHAPIRO:77.”

Gregg Shapiro will read from “How to Whistle” beginning at 7:00pm on Wednesday, August 24, 2016 at Outwords Books.
