Queer Book Club

City of Melbourne Libraries

Event Date: 27 April 2020

Join us to read and discuss all manner of books with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex or queer characters and themes.

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.
