Lambda Lit Book Club

Co-Sponsored by the West Hollywood Public Library

Welcome to the Lambda Lit Book Club, the queerest book club in LA! A program of the Lambda Literary Foundation and co-sponsored with the West Hollywood Library, this book club will highlight a different queer book each month. The books selected will be a heady mix of LGBT classics, unheralded gems, and buzz-worthy new releases.

Discussions will be led by LLF’s Director, Tony Valenzuela, or guest facilitators. When possible, LLF will invite book club selected authors to discuss a book in person. The Lambda Lit Book Club will meet the last Tuesday of every month from 7 to 8:30 pm in the West Hollywood Library Community Room. For more information contact LLF at admin@lambdaliterary.org.
