Since February 2022, we have been reading Sister Outsider by Audre Lorde. You can find a link to the PDF here, and a link to a free Sister Outsider audiobook curated by BQIC here. Sister Outsider discussion notes can be found here.
If you would like to participate and need a physical copy of the book, let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
