Rainbows Reads, hosted by Wordcrafters in Eugene, is an online teen LGBTQIA reading group, which runs every first and third Monday of the month at 6 p.m., starting in January and running until the end of 2021. Allies are welcome, and it’s FREE!

On the first Monday of the month we’ll have group activities, including picture book storytime; guest authors; conversations about LGBTQIA artists, media, and issues; and we’ll exchange reading recommendations.

On the third Monday of the month we’ll dive into the discussion book.

Call to Guest Authors

I’d like to have a guest author, who writes LGBTQIA young adult literature, join us every first Monday at 7 p.m. USA PT.

If that’s you, this would be a great place for you to chat about why you write LGBTQIA YA, talk about your works, and add to our recommended reading list. 

A few spots have already been taken, but there’s still plenty of space. Please email me for more information: babrockbooks@gmail.com
