Susie will be talking about producing the audiobook of Jon Ginoli's Deflowered: My Life in Pansy Division, which was narrated by Ginoli himself. The review on The Bright List for the audiobook describes it as, "The Pansy Division was part of a flowering of queer culture that led to the Queercore movement, ACT-UP, and Queer Nation. They toured with Green Day and won passionate devotees all over the world. Jon Ginoli himself narrates, with PANACHE!"
