New LGBT Book Club Launches in Manchester

Q, a fledgling book club specialising in reading works by and about LGBT+ people, has been founded in Manchester.

The club, which meets on the first Tuesday of the month in the Waterstones Deansgate café, plans to read an eclectic and diverse selection of contemporary and classic queer literature across many different genres.

In the few months since its inception, Q has read works by Miranda July and James Baldwin, and had a guest talk from Dr Monica Pearl, a lecturer in 20th Century American Literature at the University of Manchester, about the cultural representation of AIDS and The Hours by Michael Cunningham. 

Q is currently reading The Argonauts by Maggie Nelson and will be reading Saleem Haddad’s Guapa next.

They will be meeting to discuss The Argonauts on the 7th of March at 6:30pm in the Waterstones Deansgate café.

There’s a small discount on purchases instore for members.

All are welcome.
