Queer Book Club is an inclusive reading group open to anyone from St Helens to come together to read and discuss LGBTQIA+ literature. Founded in Autumn 2023 by a group of local queer artists, producers and book-lovers, Queer Book Club is a space to share a love of queer novels, memoirs and writing.
This month we’ll be discussing She Who Became the Sun by Shelley Parker-Chan* on Tuesday 6th February.
March 2024: Stone Butch Blues by Leslie Feinberg
April 2024: Bellies by Nicola Dinan
Queer Book Club is drop-in, meaning you don’t have to have been before to take part, but we encourage you to read the book ahead of the session. Vegan and GF refreshments and snacks will always be provided.
We want to make Queer Book Club as accessible to as many people as possible and therefore we will hold two pre-bought copies of the book. Either contact Britney via firstname.lastname@example.org or call in to The Book Stop to borrow a copy. Additionally, as a QBC reader, you also receive 20% off your copy of the chosen book this month at The Bookstop in St Helens by quoting "Queer Book Club" at the till.
This book club will use Heart of Glass' Safer Spaces Agreement to create a space that aims to be as welcoming and respectful as possible.
