Outwrite fundraiser coincides with ‘CNN Dialogues’

The fundraiser will benefit the Save Outwrite Books fund and will be held at Five Napkin Burger, one of Midtown’s newest restaurants, at 8:30 p.m. following the CNN event. Five Napkin Burger is located at 990 Piedmont Ave. at the corner of 10th and Piedmont Streets, across the street from Outwrite.

Outwrite has faced financial difficulties in recent months, due to a sluggish economy, according to its owner Philip Rafshoon. The landmark bookstore, one of the last independent LGBT bookstores in the country, plans to move to a new location, says Rafshoon, though a new location is as of yet undetermined.
