Literary Spectrum – Meets Every 1st Tuesday of the Month 6pm-7pm

Literary Spectrum is a “bring what you’re reading” style book club, in partnership with the Kankakee Area LGBTQIA+ Network, that encourages everyone to read what they love! This allows us to read at our own pace, while also having the opportunity to learn about tons of amazing books we may never have heard of. This is a safe space for the queer community, and all are welcome! These are a few pics from some of our most recent meetings. We would love to see you at the next one!
