Hope you can join us for the book club this month. Our selection this month is 'All The Boys Aren't Blue" by George M. Johnson.
While some libraries are closed, many are offering digital download through the Delaware Public Library system, Browesabout Books is offering curbside pick-up or shipping, or purchase a hard or digital copy from Amazon!
The LGBTQ+ book club meets the last Thursday of the month and will take place in a virtual setting.
About the book:
In a series of personal essays, prominent journalist and LGBTQIA+ activist George M. Johnson explores his childhood, adolescence, and college years in New Jersey and Virginia. From the memories of getting his teeth kicked out by bullies at age five, to flea marketing with his loving grandmother, to his first sexual relationships, this young-adult memoir weaves together the trials and triumphs faced by Black queer boys.
Both a primer for teens eager to be allies as well as a reassuring testimony for young queer men of color, All Boys Aren't Blue covers topics such as gender identity, toxic masculinity, brotherhood, family, structural marginalization, consent, and Black joy.
