The first book on the Sluts' bibliography is the Pulitzer-winning "Carry Me Home," about the civil rights movement in Alabama. The club members read biographies, memoirs, Faulkner, Toni Morrison, Michael Chabon and Steinbeck ... and even that book told from a dog's point of view that got the Sluts' unanimous thumbs-down, "The Art of Racing in the Rain." Armistead Maupin once visited to read to the group, and another time each person read a poem that was meaningful, surprising one another with new personal stories. The newest member of the club, Justin Hall, cartoonist and adjunct professor atCalifornia College of the Arts, was asked to join after he spoke to the group about his anthology, "No Straight Lines: Four Decades of Queer Comics."
