Reading the Rainbow is a fun and inclusive book club that explores LGBTQIA+ experiences and literature. At the Village, ‘A’ stands for ‘Ally’, and we welcome people of all genders and identities into our engaging discussions!

For April, we will be reading feminist poet, essayist, and activist Audre Lorde’s ‘biomythography’, Zami: A New Spelling of My Name. Following Lorde’s beginnings in Harlem to her coming of age in the 1950’s, this fast-moving, lyrical book not only chronicles the extraordinary life of a vital 20th century American writer, but also all the women who shaped her. Join us as we discuss this lively, modern classic which will appeal to readers of memoir, social justice, history, and poetry, to name a few!
