About the Event

About the Book Club

QEWBOO stands for Queer Explorers of Worlds Beyond Our Own. The book club reads queer speculative/science fiction and fantasy. Many of the books read contain graphic content. Participants are encouraged to review trigger warnings before starting any book, and alternative readings are suggested when appropriate.

The QEWBOO book club meets at 2 p.m. on the last Sunday of each month and discusses a different science fiction or fantasy novel. We've been able to connect with authors before, so keep an eye out!

About Brown Girl in the Ring

The rich and privileged have fled the city, barricaded it behind roadblocks, and left it to crumble. The inner city has had to rediscover old ways -- farming, barter, herb lore. But now the monied need a harvest of bodies, and so they prey upon the helpless of the streets. With nowhere to turn, a young woman must open herself to ancient truths, eternal powers, and the tragic mystery surrounding her mother and grandmother. She must bargain with gods, and give birth to new legends.

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.

Cost: Please bring a contribution (sliding scale $1-5) for the meeting room reservation at Under the Umbrella. If $1 a month is a barrier for you, you are still welcome to attend!

When possible, please support the store and the authors by purchasing a copy here! Most books should also be available at local libraries. One copy of each book is available for free to any BIPOC person interested in reading the book but unable or unwilling to pay for a copy. Please contact Sarah if cost is a barrier for you. If you buy a book for next month's book club at Under the Umbrella, you get 10% off your book.  

RSVP is strongly encouraged.

Join us in person or virtually!
