To many readers, June marks the start of the summer reading season, but it also means Pride Month! In honour of the season, we’ve compiled a list of ten books by LGBTQIA+ authors that you’ll feel proud to add to your summer reading list. From poetry to non-fiction, from Scarborough to Jamaica, these titles represent only a small fraction of queer storytelling. We expect they’ll inspire you to add more to your bookshelves long past June.
Mayank Bhatt discusses how his novel, Belief, is very relevant today on the topic of immigration and settlement in Canada in our Five Questions series. He also talks about the standout moments in publishing his debut novel and what he’s reading.
Bhatt will be participating in IFOA Weekly’s ‘What’s Life Got To Do With It?’ panel discussion on Wednesday, March 7th at 7:30 pm.
