Aura Libraries’ Top Book Recommendations for celebrating LGBT History Month

February 2019 is LGBT History Month: a time to celebrate the history and lives of the LGBT community!

Aura Libraries have put together a list of books that bring together themes of equality, bravery, love and pride in celebration of LGBT History Month.

The books chosen below combine both historical and contemporary authors! Let us know what you think of our list and which books you would have included yourself!

Although the list could go on and on, here’s just five titles to take a look at:

  1. Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters
  2. Giovanni’s Room by James Baldwin
  3. Orlando by Virginia Woolf
  4. At Swim, Two Boys by Jamie O’Neill
  5. The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith. This novel has been retitled in recent years as Carol.

 

Remember: you can have a look at these titles and hundreds more on our online library catalogue! Plus: we can order books into your chosen library though our Inter Library Loans service!
