LGBTQ+ Book Club!

We are meeting April 6th at 8 PM after our monthly meeting!


Following our meeting join us out for dinner at a local restaurant to discuss LEAVES OF GRASS by Walt Whitman. We will decide the location together at the end of our meeting.  
Join us in reading the 1855 edition of LEAVES OF GRASS by Walt Whitman, with introduction by Harold Bloom! We are easing into the book club with this 160 page book of poetry. 
You can get your copy at Escape into Fiction (website) or the Franklin Library.
Blurb about the book from Robin our Event Coordinator: This is the most inclusive option with regard to romance and sexuality (it is not so much about love or sex between two individuals as love for oneself, which everyone can appreciate or grow to appreciate, even aromantic and asexual people). It might be ironic that a diversity group like ours is starting with a work by a dead white man, but I think that the otherwise-inclusive nature of the work, along with its beauty and its joyfulness, compensate for the race and gender of the author.
We hope you will read with us!
