Books for Year 2020

The Other Fruit Bookclub centers LGBTQ+ books, authors and readers and is hosted by Lindsay! All are welcome to attend and take part in our discussions, however we ask that if you do not identify at LGBTQ+ you approach the book club as an opportunity for listening and support and give precedence to others in discussion.

We read and discuss one book each month and are currently meeting online - althrough there is a core group of regulars, new faces join each discussion and some people dip in and out depending on whether the book grabs their attention.

We regularly have the honour of welcoming the books' authors to answer some questions so keep an eye out for these special occasions!

We offer bookclubbers 10% off the reading list, so just use the code OTHERFRUIT at checkout for that to apply :)

This season's books and meetings are:

July: 100 Boyfriends by Brontez Purnell, meeting 7pm Monday 27th July

August: Future Feeling by Joss Lake, meeting 7pm Monday 30th August

September: Sterling Karat Gold by Isabel Waidner, meeting 7pm Monday 27th September

We read across most fiction genres with the odd bit of non-fiction, exploring the work of writers as varied as contemporaries Kai Cheng Thom, Paul Mendez, Alice Oseman and giants like Ursula Le Guin & James Baldwin - you'll find past Other Fruit titles listed HERE.
