When Mystery and History Entwine: Local mystery and historical fiction author Jeannette de Beauvoir's latest book, ASYLUM, is in many ways about how the past never really goes away. "We're all fascinated by secrets," says de Beauvoir. "So I wondered what lengths someone might go to in order to *keep* their secret. The answer is, of course—murder." On July 14th, de Beauvoir will talk about how history is always mysterious—and how mysteries are often historical—using her work researching and writing ASYLUM as a starting-point for the discussion. Copies of the book will be provided by the Provincetown Bookshop and refreshments will be served.

Dermot Sparhawk, a former all-American football star at Boston College, returns in Beyond the Bridge, a prequel to Tom MacDonalds award-winning debut novel, The Charlestown Connection. In Beyond the Bridge, Sparhawk, a struggling alcoholic, agrees to help find the killer of an accused pedophile priest. When two more priests are slain in Boston's Charlestown neighborhood, it becomes evident that it is the work of a sadistic serial killer who crucifies his prey after killing them. Sparhawk blazes an unconventional trail to the killer that puts him at odds with the very people he is trying to help and initiates a turf war with law enforcement.

The tour industry, travel guides, history books: all of them mostly ignore gay history. But monuments and artworks that speak of gay history are all around us, especially in some of the major cities that people travel to most: New York, London, Paris, Rome, among others. In this talk, Professor Lear will show us a selection of places and objects that reveal the same-sex past. These will include well-known ones, such as Donatello's David—the first male nude of the Renaissance, and a shockingly homoerotic reimagining of a Biblical hero— and ones people generally don't know about or visit, such as the Lion Monument of Chaironeia, in Boeotia, Greece—where the Sacred Band is buried.

A poet visits The Tower of London and in turn is visited by 52 ghosts from various years and centuries in the Tower’s history: male & female, birds & four-footers, children & seniors, famous, infamous, and everyday folk. Each spirit speaks to the poet in a 14-line, Elizabethan-style sonnet (the form which Shakespeare immortalized). Poet Bill Koch invites you to join him to share the glories, the shames, the griefs, and the joys of a true landmark of human (and other animal) life throughout the ages!
