Lance Ringel and Chuck Muckle brought their “Gay in the Great War” dramatized reading and music program to Chicago’s famed Gerber/Hart Library on Saturday, October 18, where an appreciative crowd was in attendance. For the author, it was a true homecoming; Ringel, an Illinois native, is a former Chicago resident. He served as the editor of Windy City Times, the city's long-running LGBT newspaper.
Gerber/Hart Library and Archives was founded in 1981 to be a depository for the records of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered (LGBT) individuals and organizations, and for other resources bearing upon their lives and experiences in American society. Gerber/Hart Library and Archives is now the Midwest's largest LGBT circulating library with over 14,000 volumes, 800 periodical titles, and 100 archival collections.
