Ever wished there was a book club that featured LGBTQ+ protagonists and works by LGBTQ+ authors? We’ll read the gamut: Science Fiction, YA, Graphic Novels, Contemporary Fiction – as long as it’s good (and queer)!

The Dragon of Ynys by Minerva Cerridwen is the April book selection.

Every time something goes missing from the village, Sir Violet, the local knight, makes his way to the dragon's cave and negotiates the item's return. It's annoying, but at least the dragon is polite.

But when the dragon hoards a person, that's a step too far. Sir Violet storms off to the mountainside to escort the baker home, only to find a more complex mystery—a quest that leads him far beyond the cave. Accompanied by the missing baker's wife and the dragon himself, the dutiful village knight embarks on his greatest adventure yet.

This program is supported by The Friends of William H. & Marion C. Alexander Family Library.
