The Queerish Book Club

The Queerish Book Club is a monthly book club that specialises in LGBTQ+ literature. It typically runs on the last/second to last Monday of the month at 7pm and takes place at The Queerish Bookshop.

Our December 2023/January 2024 book is The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon and we will meet on Monday 29th January at 7pm to discuss.

You can buy the book from our shop or order online.

How will the book club typically run?

Each meeting will start with folks introducing themselves and rating the book out of 5 stars. After that we'll dive into the book club questions (that are published on the blog) for just under an hour. At the end, the next book will be announced and people can purchase the book then and there if they'd like. 

What books will we be reading?

At the first book club, we discussed what types of books everyone wanted to read. The outcome was we will read primarily fiction books with the occasional non-fiction, and they will focus on LGBTQ+ narratives and queer theory/politics. 

How long will it the club last?

The book club will last 1 hour, so from 7pm - 8pm. 

Where will it be held?

The book club will take place at The Queerish Bookshop on 39a Bondgate, Darlington, County Durham, DL3 7JJ.
