Queer Book Club
The Queer Book Club typically meets the last Saturday of every month at Gail Borden Public Libary. However, with the shutdowns, May's meeting will be held virtually. If you would like to participate, please send an email to with the subject "Book Club," and a link will be sent out closer to time.

Giovanni's Room focuses on the events in the life of an American man living in Paris and his feelings and frustrations with his relationships with other men in his life, particularly an Italian bartender named Giovanni whom he meets at a Parisian gay bar.
Tips for Obtaining Books:
