As a lesbian-owned feminist bookstore, Atlanta's Charis Books & More sometimes gets a bad rap for not showing the love for queer and progressive men. The fact is, the bookstore — the oldest feminist bookstore in the South — continually gives recognition to gay men and their works.

Tonight, Charis welcomes gay author Eric Sasson from Brooklyn, NY, to the store to read from his book, "Margins of Tolerance," the 2011 Tartt First Fiction Award runner-up. Sasson reads at the store from 7:30-9 p.m.
