Reading List - LGBTQ+ History Month

February is LGBTQ+ History Month! Ebba, our Student Community Librarian, has put together a great list of books that she recommends you should read this month.

This month, we're also hosting a Community Book Club with our chosen book being Girl, Woman, Other by Bernadine Evaristo (one of Exeter's honorary graduates!). Want to get involved in our Community Book Club? You can find four copies of the book in the Community Library in Devonshire House as well as some copies in the University library. Or if you prefer audiobooks, you can find it on BBC Sounds for free!
