This summer is a season of change for us, friends. In June we bade goodbye to our beloved children's book buyer, Ianni. This month we welcome our new bookseller, Audie! Swing by and welcome her to the neighborhood when you have a chance.
We also have big news for book club enthusiasts: Our established book club, the Lakeview #LitSyndicate, will convene for the 50th time in August, and we've permanently rescheduled to the first Monday of each month . We're also thrilled to debut a brand new book club hosted by our very own golden-eyed commander of wishes, Matty. Read all about it below:
"Queers, rejoice! Now at Unabridged Bookstore, Chicago’s premier go-to-bookstore for the LGBTQ community, a new reading group to explore queer voices in literature! We will hold our first meeting on Monday, August 12 th at 7 pm, and continue to meet the 2 nd Monday of each month to discuss the “classics” of gay fiction, queer themes in contemporary writing, and everything in between. We’re kicking it off with a novel, and an author, remembered for causing much controversy upon publication in 1978: Larry Kramer’s Faggots has had a significant impact on gay culture, as well as queer literature, even after heavy criticism. Join us for our inaugural discussion of this controversial work! "
