Feb. 23 – Berkley Library Zoom with Tinderbox Author

Feb. 23 – Berkley Library Zoom with Tinderbox Author

Berkley, MI – Discover the shocking true story of the 1973 arson fire at the Up Stairs Lounge bar in New Orleans, the largest mass killing of gay people in American history prior to the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting.

Author Robert W. Fieseler will give a Zoom reading from his book, Tinderbox: The Untold Story of the Up Stairs Lounge Fire and the Rise of Gay Liberation, which creates an indelible portrait of a closeted, blue-collar gay world that flourished before an arsonist ignited an inferno. He’ll also explore how the impassioned activism that followed proved essential to the emergence of a fledgling gay movement.
