The Bi Book Club meets once a month to discuss bi-themed books and the issues they raise. People of all orientations and genders welcome! Dinner after nearby.

The Bi Book Club theme for July & August is “The Summer of Sex.” Our book for July is The Prince of Punk Rock by Jenna Galicki (on sale now at the Bureau). This is a very sexy, very bisexual erotic romance.

I love her, but I also love him.
She’s everything to me.
He sets my world on fire.
It’s our dirty little secret, and it’s about to blow our record deal sky high.
I’m Tommy Blade, the Prince of Punk Rock, and this is our story.

What are your favorite sex scenes? Favorite dramatic scenes? Pick out some phrases or paragraphs that you’d like to discuss, that inspired you, or that struck you because of their elegant turn of phrase or the meaning behind it. Give us your critique of the book. What worked, what didnt, how was bisexuality represented? If you havent had time to finish the readings, come anyway because we read passages from the book aloud for discussion. As usual, we’ll also be using the text as a jumping off point to further discussion of bisexual issues and personal experiences.

Our next book: Memoirs of a Gigolo, by Livia Ellis, Omnibus Vol. 1-4 available at the Bureau.

We will be voting on what book we want to read after that, so check the list of Bisexual Book Award finalists for this year and last year for some ideas.

Getting Books: We urge you to purchase your print copy at the Bureau and support the only LGBT bookstore in New York City. Especially since they are hosting us in their space! If you prefer e-books, just get them your usual way.
