Queer Reader: July Book Club

July 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$6.00 – $32.99

“Queer Reader” is a book club at Epilogue that aims to provide an affirming and accessible space for LGBTQIA+ readers to come together to discuss queer literature. Each month, we’ll pick a queer book by a queer author to read and discuss together as a community. 

One of the goals of this book club is to create a community where LGBTQIA+ folks can gather to, yes, discuss books, but also to forge connections in a low-pressure, laid-back environment with other queer people in their area.

About your host: Gaby (she/her) is Epilogue’s events coordinator and resident lesbian bookseller. She reads a lot of queer romance novels, literary fiction about complicated families, memoirs, and portraits of a place. When she’s not working, she’s usually listening to The Killers or cooking big meals.

 

Upcoming Meetings:

Wednesday, July 27 at 7pm, in person*

*a Zoom option will be made available

For our July meeting, we’ll be reading Our Wives Under the Sea by Julia Armfield:

From Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year finalist Julia Armfield, a haunting, utterly original debut novel about a couple dealing with the aftermath of a disastrous deep-sea mission

Leah is changed. A marine biologist, she left for a routine expedition months earlier, only this time her submarine sank to the sea floor. When she finally surfaces and returns home, her wife Miri knows that something is wrong. Barely eating and lost in her thoughts, Leah rotates between rooms in their apartment, running the taps morning and night. Whatever happened in that vessel, whatever it was they were supposed to be studying before they were stranded, Leah has carried part of it with her, onto dry land and into their home. As Miri searches for answers, desperate to understand what happened below the water, she must face the possibility that the woman she loves is slipping from her grasp. By turns elegiac and furious, wry and heartbreaking, Our Wives Under the Sea is an exploration of the unknowable depths within each of us, and the love that compels us nevertheless toward one another. Fathomlessly inventive and original, Julia Armfield’s debut is a portrait of marriage as we’ve never seen it before.
