June is Pride Month

Happy Pride Month, especially to any and all MLWGS Dragons who identify as LGBTQIA+!

Visit the MLWGS Library to check out the Pride Month display, featuring novels, memoirs, nonfiction, and poetry with LGBTQIA+ themes, by LGBTQIA+ authors, and/or about significant LGBTQIA+ people. Fiction selections include The Paths of Marriage, a novel by MLWGS alum Mala Kumar (Class of 2003).

Even though the return date for all library books is Friday, June 11th, there’s still time to read one of these books by then. Consider checking with your public library to see what titles they’re featuring for Pride Month too.

May is Asian Pacific Islander Desi American Heritage Month!

Celebrate Asian Pacific Islander Desi American Heritage Month by reading a good book by authors like Celeste Ng, Hari Kunzru, Kiran Desai, Yoko Ogawa, Viet Thanh Nguyen, Chang Rae-Lee, Jhumpa Lahiri, and many more!

Several fiction titles are highlighted in the library’s main book display and many non-fiction titles are available too. Stop by and check one out!

If you can’t squeeze one of these books into your May schedule, any month of the year is a great time to read them!
