Event Details

Welcome guys, gals, and nonbinary pals! 

Join us at Queer Reads Book Club to discuss fiction and nonfiction books about and/or written by the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer) community.

This month's selection is An Unkindness of Ghosts by Rivers Solomon

Odd-mannered, obsessive, withdrawn--botanist and healer Aster Gray has little to offer folks in rebuttal when they call her ogre and freak. She's used to the names; she only wishes there was more truth to them. If she were truly the monster they accused of her being, she'd be powerful enough to tear down the walls of HSS Matilda, the generation ship ferrying the last of humanity to a mythical Promised Land.

​When a series of blackouts threatens Matilda's voyage as well as the lonely life Aster has carved out for herself in the slum decks of the ship, she becomes embroiled in a grudge with a brutal overseer bent on bringing her to heel. Aster may have found a way to improve her lot--if she's willing to take him on and sow the seeds of civil war.

You can access An Unkindness of Ghosts on Hoopla as an ebook or audiobook, or request a copy through the catalog. Need a library card? Get one here!
