Our first LGBT Book Group met yesterday evening, (Thurs 3rd Aug) at our store on Peach Street in Liverpool.
It was a lovely group of people, with inspiring stories to share, and we can’t wait to see you again next month! Here’s a quick round-up of our suggested reads for September.

“This beautiful collection of poems is one of our titles picked for the first LGBT book group, which was on August 3rd. This has ten poems written by lesbian and gay writers, talking about intimate and personal moments within their lives. I suggested this title because I wanted to gain a deeper insight into poetry and see how LGBT identity came into it.
It make me think about poetry in a different way, showing me how you can express so much through so few words.
Though this may only have 10 poems in, I think it is a powerful and deep collection.”
We want to hear from you! If you’re passionate about a book or topic why not write about it and send it in to us?
