Faculty Reading: Kenneth Krauss


Dr. Krauss (middle) with Karen and Barry Mason, who own and operate Circus of Books in West Hollywood.

Our own Dr. Kenneth Krauss has two scheduled book signing events on the West Coast in the beginning of the coming year. The events will mark the paperback release of his book Male Beauty, which “examines the theater, film, and magazines of the time in order to illuminate how each put forward a version of male gendering that deliberately contrasted, and often clashed with, previous constructs” in the pre-WWII era.

The first reading will be on January 4 at 4pm, at Alley Cat Books in San Francisco. This will be a wine-and-cheese event, with a reading, book signing, and discussion on gender representation throughout history.

The second is on January 6 at 5pm. This will take place at Studio One 11, a club just outside of Palm Springs. In addition to a happy hour, there will be a singer performing live music from the postwar period.

The book will be available to purchase at both events for $25.
