Sappho's Bar and Grill by Bonnie J. Morris
"Holy Hildegarde of Bingen! Bonnie Morris brings history to vivid, hilarious life in this whip-smart time travel tour de force." Alison Bechdel
“Fun, sexy, and charming, Sappho’s Bar and Grill, by Bonnie J. Morris, is a captivating time-travel romp.” Foreword Reviews
Hannah Stern, a lonely women's history professor, walks into her local lesbian bar seeking love advice from her old friend and bartender, Isabel. Hannah raises her glass in sarcastic tribute, resigned to life as a scholar. Much to her astonishment, Hannah soon finds herself in a wild, sexy-smart romp through time meeting up with the actual figures and foremothers she assigns her college students to learn about. She's caught in a time-travel vortex, one that seemingly emanates from Sappho's Bar and Grill.
What are these figures of the past trying to tell her? What wisdom do they have to share? Given the opportunity to ask her feminist role models questions about their lives and viewpoints, what will Hannah say? More importantly, will she find romance with women who loved women in the past? Or will she take a chance on her old friend Isabel, whose drinks and potions seem to hold the secret of time travel itself?
Interviews with Bonnie Morris:
Bonnie J. Morris is Adjunct Professor of Women’s Studies at both George Washington University and Georgetown University.
After earning her Ph.D from Binghamton's women's history program in 1990, she taught one of the first-ever graduate seminars on Jewish women's history at Harvard, served as global women's studies professor for the Semester At Sea program, and then joined the women's studies faculty at both George Washington University and Georgetown. Here in D.C., she teaches Women and Western Civilization, Gender and Athletics, Women and War, and Introduction to Women's Studies.
"Yes, a workload of three classes each fall and four classes each spring, with top teaching evaluations from the 300-plus students I mentor every year. Each June I work as an Exam Leader for the College Board, scoring AP U.S. History exams; each August I work at the Michigan Women's Music Festival, where I will now be coordinating the Community Center. When do I write? In the cracks, the nooks & crannies, the superlative fissures, the creased paper trails begging for my ink. L'chaim!"
From local to global: when not on campus lecturing (or cheering at women's athletic events), I'm in D.C. emceeing the Mothertongue open mic for women writers or networking as a scholarly advisor to the National Women's History Museum being built here. I tour with my one-woman play and archive my field notes from festival culture for the Schlesinger Library's special collection. HOW'S IT ALL DONE? Coffee; vitamins; love.
