Connelly, Karen. The Change Room. Toronto: Random House Canada, 2017.
I recently read a review of this book on Casey the Canadian Lesbrarian and it sounded quite interesting, in part because of how it mirrors some of my own personal experiences. I bought this and Katz’s book from amazon.com’s network of independent sellers.
George, Nina. The Little Paris Bookshop. 2013. Trans. Simon Pare. New York: Broadway Books, 2015.
I recently received this book as a gift from my mother. I love bookshops and always enjoy writing that is about them, so I look forward to reading it.
Katz, Jonathan. Gay American History: Lesbians and Gay Men in the U.S.A. New York: Thomas Y. Crowell Company, 1976.
I’ve been doing a lot of research involving queer archiving lately, and have come across several citations of this book, which is one of the earliest efforts to collect documents having to do with LGBT life. I was able to find an inexpensive used copy for my own library. It is a mammoth text, over 400 pages, the kind of scholarly effort without which the queer community today would be much poorer.

Have you read the Change Room yet? What did you think of it?
I read it last week and liked it overall (I gave it a 4/5 on Goodreads). The writing style was a bit too lowbrow for me, but the story was credible and thought-provoking.
Yah the story was realistic wasn’t it? I could totally see it all happening, apparently she is considering writing a sequel too
