Upcoming Events


Monday, October. 8 -- 7:00pm
Outwords Men's Book Group
The book chosen for discussion by the Outwords Books Men's Book Group in October will be Witchmark, the debut fantasy novel by C.L. Polk.

In an original world reminiscent of Edwardian England in the shadow of a World War, cabals of noble families use their unique magical gifts to control the fates of nations.. Magic marked Miles Singer for suffering the day he was born, doomed either to be enslaved to his family's interest or to be committed to a witches' asylum. He went to war to escape his destiny and came home a different man. The war between Aeland and Laneer leaves men changed, strangers to their friends and family, but even after faking his own death and reinventing himself as a doctor at a cash-strapped veterans' hospital, Miles can't hide what he truly is. When a fatally poisoned patient exposes Miles' witchmark, he must put his freedom at risk to investigate his patient's murder. To find the truth he'll need to rely on the kindness of the most gorgeous man he's ever seen.


Tuesday, October 9 – 7:00pm
Lesbian Reading Group @ Outwords Books
The Lesbian Reading Group in October will meet on Tuesday October 9th @ 7:00pm. The book for discussion is Emily Danforth’s acclaimed coming of age novel, now a major motion picture, The Miseducation of Cameron Post.

When Cameron Post's parents die suddenly in a car crash, her shocking first thought is relief. Relief they'll never know that, hours earlier, she had been kissing a girl. But that relief doesn't last, and Cam is forced to move in with her conservative aunt Ruth and her well-intentioned but hopelessly old-fashioned grandmother. She knows that from this point on, her life will forever be different. Then Coley Talor moves to town. She and Cam forge an unexpected and intense friendship, one that seems to leave room for something more to emerge. But just as that starts to seem like a real possibility, Aunt Ruth takes drastic action to "fix" her niece, bringing Cam face-to-face with the cost of denying her true self--even if she's not quite sure who that is.

Thursday, October 18 -- 6:00pm

BI+ Book Club

The BI+ Book Club is back in October, on Thursday, October 18 @ 6:00pm with a discussion of James Baldwin's Giovanni's Room.

Set (and written) in the 1950s Paris of American expatriates, liaisons, and violence, a young man finds himself caught between desire and conventional morality. With a sharp, probing imagination, James Baldwin's now-classic narrative delves into the mystery of loving and creates a moving, highly controversial story of death and passion that reveals the unspoken complexities of the human heart.

Monday, November 12 -- 7:00pm
Outwords Men's Book Group

Author David Pederson joins the Outwords Books Men’s Book Club in November for a reading and discussion of Death Checks In, the third offering in the popular series.

All Detective Heath Barrington and his partner, Alan Keyes, want is to get away for a weekend of romance, but they find murder instead when a missing tie leads them to the body of the peculiar Victor Blount, and Heath can't resist the urge to investigate. As Heath and Alan work together to solve the case, they encounter various and eccentric suspects, old friends, and a hostile Chicago Detective, Marty Wilchinski, who doesn't like Milwaukee police involved in a Chicago crime. Forced to act on their own, out of their jurisdiction, they race against time to find the killer before Wilchinski files the case closed.

Tuesday, November 13 – 7:00pm
Lesbian Reading Group @ Outwords Books

The book for the November discussion is Ann Aptaker’s Flesh and Gold, the fourth entry in her popular Cantor Gold series.

Havana, 1952, a city throbbing with pleasure and danger, where the Mob peddles glamor to the tourists and there's plenty of sex for sale. In the swanky hotels and casinos, and the steamy, secretive Red Light district of the Colón, Cantor Gold, dapper art thief and smuggler, searches the streets and brothels for her kidnapped love, Sophie de la Luna y Sol. Cantor races against time while trying to out run the deadly schemes of American mobsters and the gunsights of murderous local gangs.
