WHAT WE'RE READING

IN JULY

by Sarah Gailey

When a gruesome murder is discovered at The Osthorne Academy of Young Mages, where her estranged twin sister teaches Theoretical Magic, reluctant detective Ivy Gamble is pulled into the world of untold power and dangerous secrets. She will have to find a murderer and reclaim her sister―without losing herself.

MAGIC FOR LIARS

NEXT MEETING:

July 31st

  4 PM • VIRTUAL  

Due to COVID-19 precautions, we will be holding all meetings virtually until further notice. If you would like to attend, please send an email to ELGbtq@gmail.com with the subject line "Book Club" and an invite link will be sent to you. No downloads required!

Tips for Obtaining Books:

If you do not wish to purchase the book of the month, first--check our local library!  Gail Borden Public Library has many of the books we cover.  If there are no copies available in stock, you can either:


1) Check the Hoopla app or Cloud Library!  They are both free to use if you have a library card with Gail Borden, and feature many audio books and ebooks, as well as other digital materials.

2) Submit a material request form from Gail Borden!  Make sure you mention that it's for a Book Club in the "Additional Information" field, so they get the materials asap! You can submit a material request form here.

3) Ask our members! Many members like to purchase physical copies of books we cover, or already own one, so reach out and see if anyone is willing to lend it to you.

If there's a book with LGBTQ+ subjects or themes that you're interested in, please recommend it to us! We are always looking for our next picks.
