Combining lesbians and avid readers into a single club, The Jim Toy Community Center’s LezRead book club is specially designed for queer women. Meeting once monthly, group members meet to discuss reading material. This month’s book is “The Miseducation of Cameron Post” by Emily Danforth.
“The kids are alright, right? We don’t know. We have to read this book to be sure. Per Goodreads, ‘The Miseducation of Cameron Post is a stunning and unforgettable literary debut about discovering who you are and finding the courage to live life according to your own rules,'” write event organizers.
The book follows Cameron Post who must both deal with the sudden death of her parents and her newly discovered queer sexual identity.
“Cam is soon forced to move in with her conservative aunt Ruth and her well-intentioned but hopelessly old-fashioned grandmother. She knows that from this point on, her life will forever be different. Survival in Miles City, Montana, means blending in and leaving well enough alone (as her grandmother might say), and Cam becomes an expert at both,” organizers wrote. “Then Coley Taylor moves to town. Beautiful, pickup-driving Coley is a perfect cowgirl with the perfect boyfriend to match. She and Cam forge an unexpected and intense friendship — one that seems to leave room for something more to emerge. But just as that starts to seem like a real possibility, ultrareligious Aunt Ruth takes drastic action to ‘fix’ her niece, bringing Cam face-to-face with the cost of denying her true self — even if she’s not exactly sure who that is.”
