Today is officially the start of summer, which is a great moment to add to your TBR (to-be-read) shelf! Enjoy and make use of the freedom of free time to add some diverse titles to your regular reading or reading challenge. Happily, it’s still Pride Month and we have wonderful books with LGBTQ themes in our libraries. Here’s a handful of titles, and you can look for more at a top-notch resource I came across. LGBTQ Reads is a site that has curated and categorized lists and also makes note of books with nonwhite main characters. Happy reading and celebrating!
