About the Event

Join us for a queer book-themed speed dating event! Queer speed dating is about more than finding a potential love match. We're here to find community in all its forms. Name tags will be provided so you can include your pronouns and what type of relationship you are looking for.

Our book of the month for February is All About Love by bell hooks!

As bell hooks uses her incisive mind and razor-sharp pen to explore the question “What is love?” her answers strike at both the mind and heart. In thirteen concise chapters, hooks examines her own search for emotional connection and society’s failure to provide a model for learning to love. Razing the cultural paradigm that the ideal love is infused with sex and desire, she provides a new path to love that is sacred, redemptive, and healing for the individuals and for a nation. The Utne Reader declared bell hooks one of the “100 Visionaries Who Can Change Your Life.” All About Love is a powerful affirmation of just how profoundly she can.
