Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Reading Challenge: A Book with an LGBTQ+ Protagonist

The 2019 Reading Challenges are here!  Are you struggling with what to read in the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Reading Challenge categories? We can help! Throughout the year, we will highlight several juvenile, YA, and adult fiction (or non-fiction) books in most of the categories.
These aren’t the only books we have available in each category but are ideas that can help you spark inspiration, help clarify the category, and (hopefully) make your decision easier.

 

We’re continuing our discussion of books with the category “A Book with an LGBTQ+ Protagonist.”

 

Many LGTBQ+ individuals find community, understanding, and connection in books that feature characters like themselves.  For their friends and family, books with LGTBQ+ characters can be tools for understanding and supporting those they care about. As always, click on the book title or image to place the item on hold in our catalog.

Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Reading Challenge: History Before 1500

We’re continuing our discussion of books with the category “A nonfiction book about history before 1500.”

 

 

It’s hard to make sense of the present, without knowing (and understanding) what came before. We’re lovers of history here at APL and some of the most interesting history occurred before 1500!
