Queerly Reading: An LGBTQIA-Focused Book & Discussion Club

Join an open attendance, fun book club focused on  LBGTQIA authors, writing, and other media that spans multiple genres, from fiction to historical, from non-fiction to memoir, from graphic novels to essays. Members select the books the club will read on a quarterly basis. Book recommendations always welcome!

Join our Public Group on Facebook for the latest updates and to contribute ideas: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1549837271974664/

Queerly Reading meets the second Saturday of every month at 9:30AM in the Barnes and Noble Cafe in Bismarck. Everyone is welcome to attend based on your schedule and interest in the upcoming book selections. Although you know the saying: Never judge a book by its cover! Conversation will be intellectual but not academic (and sometimes downright silly!), and always intersectional.

*BRAVE SPACE* Although healthy debate is encouraged, discussion leaders will be responsible for keeping conversation respectful and on topic.
