Virtual LGBTQ Book Club

Sundays at 7:00 PM

Join the ENC staff for a monthly book club! We could all use some community right now and we'd be thrilled to have you.

Our first book for our May meeting will be Gabby Rivera’s "Juliet Takes a Breath."

The book follows Juliet Milagros Palante, a lesbian Puerto Rican college student from the Bronx who takes an internship in Portland, Oregon with her hero, a gay feminist author who is everything Juliet wants to be—or so she thinks. Throughout the book, Juliet learns important lessons about advocacy and intersectionality, all while navigating coming out to her family, overcoming her first heartbreak, and ultimately, learning to love herself exactly as she is.

Rivera is also the writer of Marvel Comics’ AMERICA series, which follows queer Latina superhero, America Chavez.
