The Briar Patch – Pride Teen Book Night
June 19 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM EDT
Join us as we celebrate Pride week in Bangor with a special book talk featuring some of our favorite recent LGBTQIA+ novels from the Young Adult section.
Our YA shelves are exploding with diverse Own Voices titles featuring characters identifying across the spectrum and tackling many of the same issues we see in real life. Bookseller extraordinaire Abby will introduce readers to some of the newest and bestselling YA books. She’ll also be announcing our lead Pride title, which will be the focus of our LGBTQIA+ Book Club in August. Plus, she’ll share some great middle grade and adult books.
We’ll have snacks, giveaways, and door prizes. Come enjoy a relaxed and welcoming evening about books and community!
