Queer Romance Book Club

The Queer Romance Book Club celebrates queer romance novels! The club reads both adult and YA romance. Due to the sexual nature of some of the books read, it is an 18+ book club but it otherwise open to all.

It is held on the third Sunday of each month at 1 p.m., unless otherwise indicated. Subscribe to the newsletter to stay up to date on books and events:


Contact Sarah at with any questions. ​


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!

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

2024 Book Schedule

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