Queer Lit Book Group
The Queer Lit Book Group is open to all, but recommended for ages 16+. Each month they will discuss a different piece of queer literature. It could be written by a queer author, and/or have queer themes or characters. February’s book will be The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For, by Alison Bechdel, a compilation of the cult classic comic strip that brought the famed “Bechdel Test” into media discussions. Often thinly veiled autobiography, The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For features loveable characters in often humorous, often deeply insightful, slice-of-queer-life moments.
The group is facilitated by Rose Turner and will meet on the first Monday of each month at 6 PM.
Rose Turner (she/they) moved from the Shenandoah Valley up to the Midcoast in 2022 and has been loving life in Maine. A librarian and artist by trade, she loves the ways stories can connect people. She’s stoked to start this book group and get to know more locals!
