[Insert clever name for a Toronto queer book club


My many searches have turned up no queer book club in Toronto.  So here it is.

I'm hoping for suggestions about the following things:

Ok, we need a name!  Whatcha got?

(Suggestions for new icons also appreciated!)

Where do we meet?

When do we meet?

What books would we like to read and discuss?  Should we make an effort to read new, emerging stuff, or start with some old standards?

I was thinking it'd be a good idea to get a reading schedule together, meet about once a month, talk about the new book, and we'd already know what the next book coming up is at that time - so basically, to get us started, we need a book to talk about in August and one for September, and we'll decide October's book in August.

My other suggestion is that we would all touch base via LJ with a few things to think about with regard to the book being discussed, not to formalize the discussion, but just to kind of get it started online and give everyone's thinker a kickstart.

Ok, so drop a comment, introduce yourself, and let's talk when, where, and what!

As someone else said - anywhere that's TTC accessible and won't take an hour to get to is fine with me. I used to be part of Sappho Stories - and we met at Slacks. They didn't mind because we would spend money too - but if that's a problem for a lot of people, maybe we can get space at the 519. I know they let you have the room for free - it's just whether it's available or not.

I'm okay with Drag King Dreams - I just finished it a couple of weeks ago but I'd love to discuss it with others who have read it.

Name? No idea. I like this icon that I use sometimes - but it's kind of girl-specific *heh*. http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b45/MsKit/reading.png
But maybe it helps lead you in the right direction...

Okay - that's my .2 cents. :D

Re: Hey!

Welcome aboard! Thanks for the icon! I've added it!

I'm kind of reluctant to have the group meet at The 519 or elsewhere in the Gaybourhood, just because - you know? I'm scouting Annex locations.
