Queerer Park hosts Sci-Fi/ Fantasy Dance Party to support Chicago Books to Women in Prison 

When: Sat., March 6, 5:44 p.m. 2010
Come dance like an alien, orc, or superhero at the Science Fiction and Fantasy Dance Party, Friday March 26th from 10pm to 2am. The free event is sponsored by Queerer Park, a monthly dance party. Fifty percent of all proceeds from the bar will go to benefit Chicago Books to Women in Prison, an all-volunteer collective that mails paperback books to women in prisons in eight (soon to be nine) states. CBWP is dedicated to offering women behind bars the opportunity for self-empowerment, education, and entertainment that reading provides. Incarcerated women send their requests for books directly to CBWP, which then gathers on Sunday afternoons to fill the requests and package the books. Donations of paperback books- whether sci-fi, fantasy, or queer (or a combination of all three) - will be accepted at the party.
