Happening Saturday: $pread Magazine Anthology Launch, Rod Lee, and more

-$pread Magazine Anthology Launch: Ten years ago, the first U.S. magazine written by and for sex workers and their allies launched, giving voice to the frequently overlooked, mistreated, and misunderstood. It ceased publication in 2011. Now, the best of $pread’s essays, illustrations, and photographs can be found in one book, along with the story of the magazine’s history and impact. In celebration of the new anthology, $pread co-founder and editor-in-chief Rachel Aimee and executive editor Eliyanna Kaiser revel in the magazine’s active years. 7:30 p.m., Red Emma’s, 30 W. North Ave., (443) 602-7585, redemmas.org, free. (Maura Callahan)
