The Other Fruit Book Club offers a free, friendly and gentle environment in which opinions are shared and new appreciations can be discovered as we explore a broad variety of books by LGBTQ+ writers. The group is s a safe, inclusive space (see our safe spaces policy) and it centers queer voices.

We're starting 2019 with Queer Africa, a stunning collection that draws together twenty-two stories selected from two ground breaking anthologies published by MaThoko Books, an imprint of Gay and Lesbian Memory in Action in South Africa.

Fresh, captivating voices through which to explore the LGBTIQA+ literary landscape: Stories from Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, South Africa, Botswana, Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe celebrate the diversity and fluidity of queer and African identifications and expressions.

Readers don’t have to buy the bookclub book from the shop, however we do rely on those books ales to be able to keep the event & refreshments free, to pay our booksellers for their time prepping & running book clubs and to keep the lights on. Please do NOT buy your books from Am*z*on (including their kindles!), if you cannot afford to buy the book then PLEASE support your local library.
