      Crossover! Queer Book Club & State of the Union Book Club with CB Lee and Jaweed Kaleem

      Special Edition Book Club! We are combining the forces of Queer Book Club and State of the Union Book Club for this unique night, reading Real Queer America: LGBT Stories from Red States by Samantha Allen. This is a journalist's personal road trip through parts of the country where you might not expect to find vibrant LGBT communities.   Please join us, with author CB Lee and journalist Jaweed Kaleem as your moderators! HOW IT WORKS: All book clubs require a ticket, and include the book, snacks/bevs, and a dedicated moderator -  (in this case TWO dedicated moderators!) - to keep the discussion on track. All clubs meet at The Last Bookstore.   You can get your ticket one of two ways: either thru the link on this page (*we'll ship the book to you!) - OR buy your ticket in the store, just look for our book club display (near the book tunnel).   *If you choose the on-line option (the one with shipping), please send a mailing address to larkin.lastbookstore@gmail.com -- Do not try to pick up the book in person. Our moderators: From our Queer Book Club: CB Lee is a bisexual Chinese-Vietnamese American writer based in Los Angeles and is the author of the Sidekick Squad series and Seven Tears at High Tide. Not Your Sidekick (Sidekick Squad #1) was a 2017 Lambda Literary Awards Finalist in Young Adult. Connect with her on Twitter @author_cblee and on Instagram at @cblee_cblee.   From our State of the Union Book Club: Jaweed Kaleem is the national race and justice correspondent at the Los Angeles Times, where he writes about how race and ethnicity shape our evolving understanding of what it means to be American. He frequently reports on policing, civil rights, immigration, prisons and religion, among other subjects. Before joining The Times, Kaleem was the senior religion reporter at HuffPost for five years. From 2007-11, he was a reporter for the Miami Herald. He was on the team that was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for covering the Haiti earthquake for the Miami Herald and is on the board of the Religion News Foundation. He attended Emerson College in Boston and grew up in Northern Virginia.
