Queer Book Club

For our third session we will read…

This session we will read the classic coming of age novel Oranges are not the only fruit by Jeanette Winterson. In this novel, we meet Jeanette, who grows up in a very strict religious environment. Jeanette always imagined herself as a missionary for her religious community, but starts to doubt this life when she falls in love with another girl. The central themes of the novel are the conflicts between religious groups and members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and the pain of losing your family when their religious beliefs cannot accept your sexuality.
