Just as skipping the prom won’t scar a young woman for life, a girlhood aversion to skirts and dolls doesn’t mean she’s a lesbian. Nevertheless, both are points of pride in Tomboys! Tales of Dyke Derring Do, a collection of stories by former lesbian children. This afternoon, sports critic and ex-pro basketball player Mariah Burton Nelson, Lambda Book Report assistant editor Kanani Kauka, and D.C.-area short-storyist Rhomylly Forbes gather to read their contributions to this celebratory anthology. Stop by and reminisce about your cowgirl hat and customized BMX bike at 4 p.m. at Lammas Women’s Books, 1426 21st St. NW. FREE. (202) 775-8218.(Nathalie op de Beeck)
