Upon the two year anniversary of our monthly drive (which has helped bring in over 15,000 books), we celebrate Pride Month with a vibrant selection of LGBTQ literature.
Three works for $30 (37% off retail)
Sister Outsider, The Prophets, and Last Night at the Telegraph Club -- $30 for three booksFollowing May's campaign (collecting over 380 books!) that spoke to the constant demand for comics (superhero and otherwise) at our nation's prisons, we focus on Pride Month and LGTBQ perspectives. A giant of literature, Audre Lorde described herself as "black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet." In Sister Outsider, Lorde's essential essays and speeches are spotlighted: timeless explorations of sexism, racism, ageism, homophobia, and class, not to mention the value of action and change. One of the most notable works of fiction from last year, Robert Jones Jr.'s The Prophets is a rare novel of gay life in the enslaved South. A finalist for the National Book Award, the New York Times singled it out as "a lyrical and rebellious love story." And hailed as an instant classic on its release--it did win the National Book Award--is Malinda Lo's breakout work Last Night at the Telegraph Club, which looks at a teenage lesbian relationship in San Francisco during the 1950s peak of Red Scare paranoia and discrimination towards Asian Americans.
