We are so pleased to be partnering with OUT Metrowest to bring this book club for the LGBTQ+ community to our area! If you are 15-25 years old (or thereabouts), identify as LGBTQ+ and would like to chat about books that celebrate LGBTQ+ joys, and to use books as a springboard to discuss the challenges, we hope you can join us. The first book club book selection is "Meet Cute Diary" by Emery Lee. This book club will be facilitated by librarians from the LGBTQ+ community and members of OUT Metrowest.
Author Emery Lee has agreed to "pop in" for the conversation - so we'll be chatting with Emery about eir book "Meet Cute Diary" We're so thrilled to welcome Emery to this discussion!
About the book:
Noah Ramirez thinks he's an expert on romance. He has to be for his popular blog, the Meet Cute Diary, a collection of trans happily ever afters. There's just one problem; all the stories are fake ... When a troll exposes the blog as fiction, Noah's world unravels. The only way to save the Diary is to convince everyone that the stories are true, but he doesn't have any proof. Then Drew walks into Noah's life, and the pieces fall into place.
In this charming novel by Emery Lee, Noah will have to choose between following his own rules for love or discovering that the most romantic endings are the ones that go off script.
