Seeds: Queer and Latinx Book Club

Seeds: Queer and Latinx Book Club meets the first Saturday of every month at King's Books. Seeds is a book club that aims to create a space for radical book nerds. Through critical engagement, we will break down texts within the latinx diaspora and make the application of theoretical lenses more accessible through conversation and connections to our everyday organizing. Seeds is more than just another latinx book club as it will focus on identity, politics, culture, queerness, citizenship, and race all while actively complicating and questioning  the markers of identity that inform what it means to be Latinx. The club is open to everyone. We will be reading a wide variety of texts from fiction, to philosophy, short stories, memoirs, sci-fi, historical pieces and much more. For questions contact Juan-Carlos. Each month, the selected book is available for purchase at King's Books. To see what we're reading this month, go to the main Events page.
