A book club specifically intended for queer women, LezRead meets regularly at the Jim Toy Community Center in Ann Arbor to discuss books on the fourth Saturday of every month. This month’s selection is “The Spanish Pearl” by Catherine Friend.
“We’ve enjoyed many of her books, including ‘Hit By a Farm,’ and ‘The Crown of Valenica,’ the sequel to ‘Spanish Pearl,'” said event organizers. “Succinctly put by Friend, ‘The Spanish Pearl’ is an epic adventure spiced with humor, lust and danger — a story with surprising twists that will capture your imagination just as Kate’s dilemma captures your heart.’ For additional perspective, Friend states: ‘I write stories to escape the despair and violence and pressures surrounding all of us in the twenty-first century. If that’s what you’re looking for too, give The Spanish Pearl a try.'”
Meetings usually last two hours, the first spent talking about the book and the second enjoying drinks and snacks at Aut Bar. Organizers said that first-time attendees should bring a small cash donation for the use of the community center.
This event will be from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 8. More information can be found online on the group’s LezRead Facebook page.
