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 In at the Deep End by Kate Davies.
Kate Davies’ debut novel tells a type of queer story that’s not often seen. The Bridget Jones-esque rom-com follows Julia, a twenty-something whose ambivalence about dating men has crept into all corners of her life. But when she sleeps with a woman for the first time, it’s the missing piece to the life she wasn’t living. As she dives into her newfound queerness with excitement, she meets Sam, an intriguing artist who shows Julia the some of the ropes, if you will, of BDSM and polyamory. And while she falls fast and hard for Sam, Julia learns that her new girlfriend might not have the best intentions or be the right match for her.
