In This Issue

We are kicking off Pride Month with fabulous book recommendations! Cactus Country by Zoë Bossiere is "a wise and wonderfully crafted... memoir of gender and a hardscrabble coming-of-age in the American Southwest"; The Future Was Color by Patrick Nathan "deserves to become a new lodestar in the ever-expanding constellation of gay literature"; and Exhibit by R.O. Kwon is "a searing study of art, desire, and bodily and intellectual freedom." Plus, for teen readers, We Mostly Come Out at Night: 15 Queer Tales of Monsters, Angels & Other Creatures by Rob Costello showcases "queer and trans authors in a gloriously layered collection" of "satisfyingly terrifying tales."

In The Writer's Life, Chris Colfer adds "a funny, adventurous, and heartfelt story" to the science fiction genre; and Justinian Huang has a recurring dream about partying with Oscar Wilde.
