We’re in the last full week of January and really getting going with our events planning for 2018. This year, we’re already working on scheduling folks into May and June so that we can create a calendar that is diverse in author, genre, topic, and style—and based on what you, our bookstore friends and family, have asked for.
Thank you to everyone who came out to this month’s Doctor Who Discussion Night where we talked about Holiday specials, as well as all of you who came for our Rainbow Readers event where we discussed Think of England by KJ Charles. As always, we had a wonderful time at both events! We have the dates and titles for this monthly LGBTQIA book club already posted through May, and our Doctor Who Discussion Night dates and topics coming soon, so keep an eye on our Facebook Events page here!
