The Other Fruit Bookclub is run by Lindsay and centers LGBTQ+ books, authors and readers! All are welcome to attend and take part in our discussions, however we ask that if you do not identify at LGBTQ+ you approach the book club as an opportunity for listening and support and give precedence to others in discussion.

Sapphic winter read anyone? The Bookclub returns in January for a discussion of seasonal classic Carol. by Patricia Highsmith!

Therese is just an ordinary sales assistant working in a New York department store when a beautiful, alluring woman in her thirties walks up to her counter. Standing there, Therese is wholly unprepared for the first shock of love. Therese is an awkward nineteen-year-old with a job she hates and a boyfriend she doesn't love; Carol is a sophisticated, bored suburban housewife in the throes of a divorce and a custody battle for her only daughter.

As Therese becomes irresistibly drawn into Carol's world, she soon realizes how much they both stand to lose...First published pseudonymously in 1952 as The Price of Salt, Carol is a hauntingly atmospheric love story set against the backdrop of fifties' New York.

Readers don’t have to buy the book club book from the shop, however we do rely on those book sales to be able to keep the even free, to pay our booksellers for their time prepping & running book clubs and to keep the lights on.

Please do NOT buy your books from Am*z*on (including their kindles!), if you can't afford the book then PLEASE use our pay-it-forward fund (the code is SOLIDARITY-BOOK-LOVE at checkout) or support your local library.
