About the Event

About QEWBOO

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.

Follow @qewboo.bookclub on Instagram for more updates!

The book club meets on the last Sunday of each month at 2 p.m., unless otherwise indicated.

Please consider bringing 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!

COVID Precautions: It is a requirement for both the bookstore and the book club to wear a mask.

About the Book

In a futuristic world ravaged by global warming, people have lost the ability to dream, and the dreamlessness has led to widespread madness. The only people still able to dream are North America's Indigenous people, and it is their marrow that holds the cure for the rest of the world. But getting the marrow, and dreams, means death for the unwilling donors. Driven to flight, a fifteen-year-old and his companions struggle for survival, attempt to reunite with loved ones and take refuge from the "recruiters" who seek them out to bring them to the marrow-stealing "factories."

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 QTPOC interested in reading the book but unable or unwilling to pay for a copy.
