The LOFT Book Club is an open group which meets monthly to discuss different LGBT literary selections.
From Pulp Fiction to Queer Literature, The LOFT’s Book Club is your way of keeping up on the latest in LGBT literature, while finally getting to those better-known genre pieces you haven’t gotten around to reading.
The LOFT Book Club is presented by The LOFT Library & David Bohnett Cyber Center.
The group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 8:00pm to 9:30pm.
August 22nd (The 4th Tuesday in August) Bette Greene The Drowning of Stephan Jones
Hate. It's the farthest feeling from sixteen-year-old Carla Wayland's mind. She can't believe people would persecute others just because they are different. But she isn't about to worry about the injustice surrounding her because she's in love with handsome and popular Andy Harris. Although raised to act on her ethical beliefs, Carla finds that her enchantment with Andy makes her a silent partner in his hate campaign and harassment of gay couple Stephan Jones and Frank Montgomery.
September 19 Omar El Akkad American War
