Bookstore Picks

Pride and Joy

June 5, 2021

Pride Month has begun and this week we celebrate with a selection that includes fiction from first-time writers and old friends alike, plus an anthology of new poetry. You can mark the occasion by reading one of these new titles featuring LGBTQ+ stories and storytellers. They wrestle with sexual identity, shifting family dynamics, unsettling eroticism, and comic relief. Critics have described a few of them as books you didn’t know you wanted to read. I agree.

Happy reading,
