Queer books we may not have read – online book club

March 4, 2015 § 9 Comments

I read an awful lot for my work, but find I have less and less time for reading for pleasure, as cliche as that sounds.

So – an online book club?

After a discussion on my facebook page (many thanks to everyone who weighed in), it seemed like I’m not the only one who’d welcome a chance to read a little more, particularly queer/LGBT books, and to discuss what they’ve read within a supportive circle. One book every two months seems like a pretty good place to start – and while I’d love to hear book suggestions, I’m going to go ahead and pick the first myself.

 

To that end: The Summer We Got Free by Mia McKenzie.

A Lambda Literary Award winning novel from the writer behind the incredible blog Black Girl DangerousI’ve been desperate to make time to read this since it came out, and can’t think of a better chance than this.

Anyone is welcome to take part, so long as you’re happy to share your thoughts according to house rules: no assumptions, no personal attacks, no cruelty or bigotry.

Discussion will commence on Tuesday April 28th – can you let me know where would be best for you?

If you have any thoughts/suggestions/advice, I’d love to hear from you. Roll on April 28th.
