Are our fellow bookish, writerly, LGBTQ+ folx longing for more opportunities to be with our community, especially after two-plus years of lockdown? YES!
Want to gather the week before Pride in a place that treasures your nerdy selves while being surrounded by books? YES!
Then join us for ALL PRIDE, NO PREJUDICE! for the happiest of happy hours! We will have prizes to give away, oracle card readings, a game of exquisite corpse, a game of “Who Wrote that Quote,” and a book exchange to help break the ice for our introverted friends. Bring your favorite novel to give, and go home with a new story. And, there will be music! And special drinks! And, our bookstore has more LGBTQ+ books to browse than you ever knew existed.
