About this event
Every month we will read 1-2 different books that centres on sapphic themes and characters. If it’s a romance novel, it will be between sapphics.
The goal of this is to discuss our monthly read(s), make connections with other bookish sapphics, as well as discuss any other sapphic book-related content. Books for each month will be picked via polls posted in the Discord server. Recommendations and suggestions are encouraged and welcomed!
There is also a Discord server to talk about our monthly picks and all things bookish! Join here: #SapphicStoriesBookClub Discord Server
Please note that you do not have to participate in the virtual meetings to be a part of the bookclub. It’s also your choice to have your camera/microphone on or off during the discussions; you can participate in the chat box if you prefer that. Do whatever you’re most comfortable with!
There will be two meetings each month to accommodate folks in different timezones: one at 2PM EST and one at 7PM EST. It’s up to you which one you want to attend (or both)!
Additionally, if two books are chosen in a month then each meeting will consist of a discussion of each book (1 hour per book).
Meetings will generally take place on the 4th Saturday of each month, unless otherwise stated (announcements will always be made in the Discord and on my Instagram page @gillesbianreads).
Sapphic in this context means any woman-loving-woman, nonbinary-loving-woman, and any other non-man who loves women and feels comfortable under the sapphic umbrella. This includes, but is not limited to, people who identify as lesbian, bi, pan, fluid, and queer. The only requirement is that you’re not a man, you love women romantically/sexually, and you feel a connection to being sapphic.
Anyone- sapphic or ally- is welcome to join this book club, except cishet men. This is a bookclub meant to centre on and uplift all sapphics and our diverse experiences. If you are not sapphic, please do not speak over sapphics and be conscious of the space you’re taking up in these conversations: know your place as an ally. If you are sapphic, know that your opinion matters most on sapphic-related issues!
