GLBT Reading Challenge. I'll do my best to find books that inspire and enlighten.
By reviewing twelve books in this category I'll qualify for Rainbow status. Very appropriate for someone living in Hawaii.
First up in January is Out In The Garden by Dean Riddle. According to the book jacket, the author dispenses hands-on gardening advice and talks about growing up gay in South Carolina.
February's pick will be Hit By A Farm: How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love The Barn, by Catherine Friend. This follows the adventures of a lesbian couple new to farming.
Shakespeare's Sonnets by Samuel Park will be my March title. Set at Harvard in the 1940's, the book follows a scholarship student in love with poetry, with being gay, and with stirring up trouble. I'm looking forward to seeing how Shakespeare is involved.
What happens after March? Stay tuned and I'll post more titles as I find them in my library.
Thanks to Amanda at The Zen Leaf and to Jen for organizing this challenge.
