Petoskey District Library Celebrating Pride Month Through Summer Community Read Program

In celebration of Pride Month and the Stonewall Riots, the Petoskey District Library is beginning their Summer Community Read Program while celebrating the LGBTQ+ community.

The library will be reading “Last Night at the Telegraph Club,” which is about a young Asian-American woman discovering and accepting herself for who she is as a lesbian in 1950’s San Francisco. The reading will also feature members of the LGBTQ Alliance of Petoskey to be a part of a book discussion after the reading.

Following the reading, as Tuesday is the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, there will be a pride march from the library to the corner of Mitchell and the highway.

“Here at the library, we really try and strive to have materials for everybody in our community to read, and we like to provide windows and mirrors for people,” said Valerie Meyerson, library director at Petoskey District Library. “This is a good book that can provide a mirror to somebody that may be going through something similar.”

The reading begins around 6 p.m. Tuesday. Anyone is welcome to attend.
