Queer Book Group (QBG) Reads Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit

February 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

This month QBG reads the queer classic Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson. “Winner of the Whitbread Prize for best first fiction, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit is a coming-out novel from Winterson, the acclaimed author of The Passion and Sexing the Cherry. The narrator, Jeanette, cuts her teeth on the knowledge that she is one of God’s elect, but as this budding evangelical comes of age, and comes to terms with her preference for her own sex, the peculiar balance of her God-fearing household crumbles.” Copies of the book are available instantly on Hoopla with your library card!

We’ll be meeting via Zoom – email Rob at and you will be sent the Zoom meeting link close to the time of the meeting.

Queer Book Group / Social reads great LGBTQ-themed books, both fiction and non-fiction, and hosts LGBTQ-themed social events. New members are welcome!  Come make some new friends & expand your community!
