Great list from NPR in celebration of Pride Month. I’ll definitely be checking out The Verifiers by Jane Pek.
June is Pride Month in the United States, commemorating the Stonewall riots that began on June 28, 1969. They marked a turning point for a new generation of political activism. It’s a chance to celebrate queer people across history and continue the fight for full and equal rights for LGBTQ+ people around the globe.
From history books and cozy mysteries to plenty of romance, we’ve rounded up eight books to help you mark Pride Month.
