OutWrite is a celebration of LGBT Literature. The weekend is full of book readings, writing workshops, book discussions, poetry readings and more. Several LGBT book publishers regularly exhibit at OutWrite. We will have both new and used LGBT books for sale all day long on Saturday August 6th. The 6th Annual OutWrite LGBT Book Festival will take place Friday August 5th through Sunday August 7th with most events taking place at the Reeves Center in Washington DC. Most of the book readings and the exhibit hall will take place on Saturday August 6th.
