This is a meetup for queer-identifying folks to get together and read books together, talk about them, and socialize. (But we won't discriminate against any straight allies that may want to participate!)

Books read  in this meetup group will include multiple genres, and group participants will help decide what books will be read. While it is a queer-targeted book club, we will not be limited to queer-themed material (though such literature will have its place, as few other book clubs will incorporate them into their lists). It is a wonderful opportunity to be exposed to books and genres that you may not otherwise read on your own (at least, that has been my experience with book clubs).

There is never any pressure to have the book for a given meeting fully read (or even cracked open to read). We know that life happens to take away time, and joining really close to a meeting date doesn't leave much room to finish a book either.  Just join us for some good conversation and wine. Maybe you'll be inspired to read the book after the fact.

Did you say wine? Yes! I will supply at least one bottle of some type of wine at each meeting. Attendees are also encouraged to bring something to share--but, like having the book read--this is not a requirement. It just makes it more social.

Please feel free to offer suggestions for books to read, and just have fun.

Oh, and any book that we read for the club will be available through Book, Inc., who provide a discount whne you buy it through them.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
