About the Event

About the Book Club

The graphic novel book club meets on the last Tuesday of each month and discusses a different queer graphic novel. We've been able to connect with authors and artists and receive swag before, so this is not a book club to miss!

Claiming a Free Book

Thanks to a generous donation, we are able to proviede three free copies of the book of the month EACH MONTH! If you are interested in receiving a free copy, fill out this form. We are prioritizing BIPOC, disabled, and trans readers for these free copies. You may apply for free books each month, but we will prioritize new individuals. 

COVID Precautions

It is a requirement for both the bookstore and the book club to wear a mask. An air purifier will be running in the room throughout the duration of the book club meeting.

About Displacement

A teenager is pulled back in time to witness her grandmother's experiences in WWII-era Japanese internment camps.

Kiku is on vacation in San Francisco when suddenly she finds herself displaced to the 1940s Japanese-American internment camp that her late grandmother, Ernestina, was forcibly relocated to during World War II. These displacements keep occurring until Kiku finds herself "stuck" back in time. Living alongside her young grandmother and other Japanese-American citizens in internment camps, Kiku gets the education she never received in history class. She witnesses the lives of Japanese-Americans who were denied their civil liberties and suffered greatly, but managed to cultivate community and commit acts of resistance in order to survive.
