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. We meet at Charis Books & More on the last Saturday of the month and often go out to lunch after. All are welcome to join!

You can find us on meetup at: https://www.meetup.com/ATL-LGBTQ-Book-Club/ or on Facebook at:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/ATLLGBTQBookClub/ or feel free to reach out to the group facilitator, Shelby, at shelbykurland@gmail.com 

The suggested donation in support of the space is $5. No one is turned away for lack of funds.

January's book is Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz.

February's book is Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera.

This Printz Honor Book is a “tender, honest exploration of identity” (Publishers Weekly) that distills lyrical truths about family and friendship.

Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common.
