QueerEvents.ca - Presents Queer Book Club

Queer Book Club

Queer Events presents a new all inclusive Queer Book Club, as one of our most recent initiatives.

In partnership with the London Public Library, Queer Book Club aims to bring all members of our community together in a safe, supportive and inclusive space to enjoy literature, conversation and most of all engage with each other.

Queer Book Club is a queer-facilitated discussion group dedicated to reading novels by queer authors that tackle a variety of subject matter and interests. QBC meets every other month at the London Public Library Central Branch.

Queer Book Club's bi-monthly events are made possible with the support from the London Public Library.
