Keene Pride Youth Book Club Selection for March

Keene Pride Youth Book Club Selection for March (Keene NH)

Keene Pride is partnering with the Farm Cafe in downtown Keene to offer a free monthly youth book club for teens ages 13-17. It will be held every Monday at 4pm. The group will be facilitated by Eliza Komisar, Co-Chair of the Keene Pride Youth Outreach Committee.

The Farm Cafe is donating their space to host the book club, located at 12 Emerald Street. Twelve spots are available for attendees, who do not have to be accompanied by an adult to participate. The Café will be closed and refreshments will not be available.

Keene Pride will purchase books for club members. The March book is Last Night at The Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo. Goodreads describes the book as follows.
“That book. It was about two women, and they fell in love with each other.” And then Lily asked the question that had taken root in her, that was even now unfurling its leaves and demanding to be shown the sun: “Have you ever heard of such a thing?” Seventeen-year-old Lily Hu can’t remember exactly when the question took root, but the answer was in full bloom the moment she and Kathleen Miller walked under the flashing neon sign of a lesbian bar called the Telegraph Club. America in 1954 is not a safe place for two girls to fall in love, especially not in Chinatown. Red-Scare paranoia threatens everyone, including Chinese Americans like Lily. With deportation looming over her father—despite his hard-won citizenship—Lily and Kath risk everything to let their love see the light of day.”
Space is limited. Registration includes a free copy of the book. To sign up, add a book club membership to your cart and process the transaction at .For more information, email
