April Book Club Pick 

About: "From T. Kingfisher, the award-winning author of The Twisted Ones, comes What Moves the Dead, a gripping and atmospheric retelling of Edgar Allan Poe's classic "The Fall of the House of Usher." When Alex Easton, a retired soldier, receives word that their childhood friend Madeline Usher is dying, they race to the ancestral home of the Ushers in the remote countryside of Ruritania. What they find there is a nightmare of fungal growths and possessed wildlife, surrounding a dark, pulsing lake. Madeline sleepwalks and speaks in strange voices at night, and her brother Roderick is consumed with a mysterious malady of the nerves. Aided by a redoubtable British mycologist and a baffled American doctor, Alex must unravel the secret of the House of Usher before it consumes them all"-- Provided by publisher.


What is Queer Book Club? 

The Queer Book Club was formed as a collaborative effort between the University Libraries and the Gender and Sexuality Resource Center (GSRC). This inclusive and welcoming space is dedicated to exploring the diverse narratives within the LGBTQ+ spectrum through the lens of literature. Join us monthly for engaging discussions, thoughtful reflections, and an opportunity to connect with fellow book enthusiasts who share a passion for queer literature. Whether you're a member of the LGBTQ+ community or an ally seeking to broaden your perspectives, our Queer Book Club provides a platform to explore and celebrate the rich tapestry of LGBTQ+ experiences.
