There are many Seattle area book clubs for our LGBT community. Everyone is welcome at any of these clubs. To join, simply visit the site to find out what book they are reading this month, read the book, and show up to discuss it.
Also, if it’s your first time, feel free to attend a meeting even if you haven’t read the book. That will give you a chance to meet the people in the club and find out what next month’s book is.
BETWEEN THE COVERS, the Gay City LGBT Library book club, is an informal group of queer folks talking about queer literature that meets monthly on the second Saturday.

THE SEATTLE GAY AND LESBIAN BOOK CLUB Meets at SASG on Capital Hill (previously Dunshee House) every Wednesday at 6 p.m. We read one book each month and discuss that book all month. Some members come every Wednesday; some join us once or twice a month. For busy people, four opportunities means not having to worry about missing out! And spreading the discussion over a month allows us to approach topical questions in depth, for readers to dive back into the text and explore thoughts different from their own. Current Meetings: October 22 and 29, 2014, 6 p.m. at SASG (303 17th Ave E, Seattle), reading The Life to Come by E. M. Forster. MORE INFO
