Up this month is the most recent winner of the Lambda Literary Award for fiction – Here Comes the Sun, by Nicole Dennis-Benn. We meet on the first Tuesday of the month to discuss books with lesbian themes/characters/issues. All readers welcome.
This month’s book is Bullet for a Star by Stuart Kaminksy. Lately we’ve been reading more recently published books, and often thrillers, so we’re going back to the basics the next few months. This novel, a Hollywood mystery with scandal and blackmail, was originally published in 1977, is a hard-boiled throwback, and Kaminsky’s first book. (We meet on the third Tuesday of every month, and we read and discuss mysteries and thrillers.)
This month we’re doing something different and reading a book of essays. It’s our first, and one of the few memoirs we’ve read on top of that. It’s Objects in Mirror are Closer Than They Appear by local author Kate Carroll de Gutes, and it won the Oregon Book Award for narrative nonfiction last year. (We meet the first Tuesday of every month to discuss books with lesbian themes/topics/characters/authors. All readers welcome.)
