Queer Book Club
City of Melbourne Libraries
Back by popular demand! We read and talk about queer books – broadly defined as those which relate to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, asexual or queer lives. In 2019 we saw a new side of Eleanor Roosevelt in White houses, followed Arthur on his international adventures in Less, and read queer life stories from the National Library’s archives... among other things.
Anyone and everyone is welcome to come along and join our conversation. If you are new to the group, introduce yourself to the book club convener when you arrive.
City Library on the fourth Monday of the month.
