[Virtual] Rainbow Book Club: The Gilda Stories
Rainbow Book Club is a virtual book club that meets via Zoom and discusses diverse modern and classic literature with LGBTQ+ themes. All titles are available at the library or digitally through Libby or Hoopla.
In honor of American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month, we’re reading The Gilda Stories by Jewelle Gomez. Before Buffy, before Twilight, before Octavia Butler’s Fledgling, Jewelle Gomez (Cape Verdean/Ioway/Wampanoag) wrote this double Lambda Award-winning vampire novel. “In sensuous prose, Jewelle Gomez uses the vampire story as a vehicle for a re-telling of American history in which the disenfranchised finally get their say. Her take on queerness, community, and the vampire legend is as radical and relevant as ever.”–Michael Nava, author of The City of Palaces.
