CAMP Rehoboth Book Club

January 28, 2020

Join the CAMP Rehoboth LGBTQ+ Book Club reading both fiction and nonfiction! The book club is open to everyone! January's pick is Tinderbox: The Untold Story of the Up Stairs Lounge Fire and the Rise of Gay Liberation by Robert W. Fieseler.

Buried for decades, the Up Stairs Lounge tragedy has only recently emerged as a catalyzing event of the gay liberation movement. In revelatory detail, Robert W. Fieseler chronicles the tragic event that claimed the lives of thirty-one men and one woman on June 24, 1973, at a New Orleans bar, the largest mass murder of gays until 2016.

Book Club is one of the "off-CAMPus" programs that meets at the Lewes Library on January 30th at 6:30 pm. Copies of the book can be bought from local bookstores or can be borrowed at local libraries.

For more information or to RSVP, please call Salvatore Seeley at 302-227-5670 or email at
