Violet Hour Book Club


A monthly place to discuss classic and contemporary works of LGBTQ literature, the Violet Hour Book Club is open to the public and takes place in person at the Archives gaies du Quebec (1000 Atateken #201-A) and on Zoom. You don’t have to be an expert in literature to partake, nor do you even have to speak if you don’t want to. All that is required is a love of reading and books. Here are our upcoming titles:

November 11, 2023
The Sleeping Car Porter (5th Anniversary selection) by Suzette Mayr

December 9, 2023
Michael Tolliver Lives by Armistead Maupin

The Violet Letter

Once a month, I send out The Violet Letter. It’s an LGBTQ literary newsletter filled with book news and events, literary links, and short interviews with authors (always from a Canadian perspective). You can sign up for it below.
