Laurie Greene is a professor at Stockton University in New Jersey, having taught there since 1986. Her book Drag Queens and Beauty Queens: Contesting Femininity in the World’s Playground, is an examination of the drag and beauty pageants that have run often parallel to one another, thematically as well as literally, in Atlantic City over the last several decades.
This evening Laurie will be reading from her book, as well as introducing several of the queens featured in its pages!
