It is a great way to start your day and find some extra motivation to get moving. There is no need to register and you can come as many weeks as you find helpful. All abilities welcome.

LGBTQ+ Book Club
Are you tired of reading for academic purposes? Do you identify as part of the LGBTQIA2+ community? Do you sometimes struggle with your mental health?
Queer Book Club may be the place for you! This book club focuses on one piece of LBGTQIA2+ literature each semester to allow you to read for pleasure at a reasonable pace. The primary goal of the group is to engage in conversations surrounding mental health as it relates to the literature and building connection with one another.

1/16, 2/20, 3/26, 4/16
