Oscar Gittemeier, a library professional in Atlanta, has put together a 2013 calendar featuring some of Atlanta's queer literary devotees and their allies.
The calendar is called “Libraries Are Such A Drag” and all proceeds from its sale will go to the Georgia Library Association's Beard Scholarship. The calendar can be purchased at local Decatur coffee shop Java Monkey and will be available on Amazon Dec. 1.
“I had received a scholarship from the Georgia Library Association and I wanted to give back to the organization,” Gittemeier said today by phone. “A lot of my friends love the library and I love the library.”
Gittemeier added that a few hundred calendars have been printed and will sell for $20 a piece at Java Monkey and online for $25. The price difference is to help cover the cost of shipping, Gittemeier said.
“We turned to friends. I went to the people I knew that loved libraries and had each of them find their favorite books and they modeled with that. My partner works at Java Monkey. A couple of the baristas from Java Monkey also participated,” Gittemeier said.
Gittemeier's partner Jessi Noreault is the calendar's cover model.
A release party is scheduled for Sat. Dec. 1 at Trackside Tavern kicking off at 8 p.m.
