Please join us for our new book group, "Literary InQueeries: NPL's LGBTQ book group for everyone." All are welcome to this group, where we will read and discuss books with LGBTQ themes. We meet on the third Wednesday of the month at Commune (located at 33 Pleasant Street in Newburyport).
This month's title is Stray City by Chelsey Johnson.
Andrea Morales escaped her Midwestern Catholic childhood-- and the closet-- to create a home and life for herself within the thriving but insular lesbian underground of Portland, Oregon. One drunken night, reeling from a bad breakup and a friend's betrayal, she recklessly crosses enemy lines and hooks up with a man. To her utter shock, Andrea soon discovers she's pregnant, and she decides to have the baby. A decade later, when Lucia starts asking questions about the father she's never known, Andrea is forced to reconcile the past she hoped to leave behind with the life she's worked so hard to build.
All are welcome to this event. No reservations necessary. Please note that though this book group meets at Commune, it is run by the library. If you would like staff to put the book on hold for you, or have any questions about the group, please call us at 978-465-4428.
