Queer Book Club

The Queer Book Club is a meet-up for LGBTQIA and/or otherwise queer identifying folks to get together and read books together, talk about them, and socialise. (We won't discriminate against any straight allies that may want to participate) We will continue to meet on the third Saturday of the month in the Werksalon in the Van Abbemuseum (2nd floor in the collection building).

Here you find the link to the reading of this month.

12:30 - 13:30 Queer Book Club hang out time / visit the museum / stay around for a chat /

The queer book club will read parts of novels and academic texts, but might also incorporate podcasts, video-content and other media-channels depending on the suggestions added by the participants. Please feel free to offer suggestions for books, texts or other content to read, listen to or watch. In this way we hope to be inclusive, not overly academic and get to a large variety of information; a great starting point for discussions. It is a wonderful opportunity to be exposed to books and genres that we may not otherwise read on our own. If one hasn't been able to read/watch/hear the suggested content please feel invited to join anyways!

The reading group is not facilitated by a specific person, however Claire O’brien will be the facilitator through out the first two events, and from April onwards the roles will rotate for the last three sessions. If you are interested in facilitating a Book Club session, please let us know.

This event is free of charge and the first meetings will be in English.

The Facebook-event is where we keep updating the event. Have a look under the discussion tab. If you are not on Facebook we welcome you to contact queer@vanabbe.nl for more information. 

The Queer Book Club was initiated by Claire O’brien and is co-organised by the Van Abbemuseum.
