Tix can be obtained at AHF, the Manor, Broward House offices or by calling 954.522.4749 x 1222. Don't be left out on what promises to be fun, albeit probably bloody, night!!!

Tuesday, July 2 – Stonewall Book Discussion Group – 7pm. Stonewall National Museum & Archives,1300 East Sunrise Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale. They will discuss Blue's Bayou by David Lennon, one of his series of The Quarter Boy books. It is a mystery novel, the main character being a New Orleans detective who returns to his home town because of a death in the family and ends up having to solve a murder case. It is the sort of crime novel that has a little comedy that keeps it light and entertaining while still being suspenseful.
