ATL LGBTQ+ Book Club Reads

Event date: 
Saturday, June 27, 2020 - 10:00am to 11:30am

The ATL LGBTQ+ Book Club is a group for Atlanta's LGBTQ+ folks and allies to read queer-themed books and books by queer authors! We aim to have diverse thought-provoking discussions about queer identity, history, and topical issues. For the duration of the COVID-19 crisis, our book club, which normally meets at Charis Books & More, will meet online via zoom. All are welcome to join!

You can find us on meetup at:  ATL LGBTQ Book Club Meet Up or on Facebook at: ATL LGBTQ Book Club Facebook or feel free to reach out to the group facilitator, Shelby, at shelbykurland@gmail.com 

June: Under the Udala Trees, Chinelo Okparanta and Decatur illustrator Noah Grigni will make a special appearance to read their children's book, It Feels Good to be Yourself.


This zoom meeting requires a reservation. By joining the zoom call you agree to abide by the guiding principles of the group and code of conduct, including confidentiality, and will not record audio or video of any portion of the meeting without prior consent of the organizers.

The event is free and open to all people, especially to those who have no income or low income right now, but we encourage and appreciate a solidarity donation in support of the work of Charis Circle, our programming non-profit. Donate via this link: www.chariscircle.org/donate. Charis Circle's mission is to foster sustainable feminist communities, work for social justice, and encourage the expression of diverse and marginalized voices.
