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 on Zoom (hoping to meet once again in person, in Montreal, once the pandemic is over).
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:

My Father and Myself by J. R. Ackerley

Such a Lonely, Lovely Road by Kagiso Lesego Molope

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.
