Book Club

Join fans and readers of LGBTQIA+ YA, as we discuss two LGBTQIA+ YA books (usually new releases) every month. Get to know others who are passionate about LGBTQIA+ YA, and have fun squeeing over, analyzing, and discussing GayYA’s Book of the Month.

Here’s our current schedule!

January 11th, 8pm EST: The Cursed Queen by Sarah Fine

January 25th, 8pm EST: History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera


How to Participate: 

Two Wednesdays on each month we have an hour-long twitchat (moderated by the fantastic Katherine Locke). If you’re hoping to join in, remember to check your timezones! Throughout the month, we also use the GayYA Book Club tag on tumblr to discuss. (And you can feel free to use Twitter to post your reactions & thoughts!: #GayYABookClub.)
