On Sunday, April 28th from 5-6 pm, Solid State Books in Washington D.C. will host the Sapphic Book Club to discuss the Harvey Award-winning autobiographical manga "My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness" by Nagata Kabi. This monthly book club caters to lovers of queer reads, particularly those of the women-loving-women (WLW) variety. Attendees can expect to dish about the Sapphic pick with like-minded readers in an open and welcoming environment. The book offers an honest and heartfelt exploration of the author's journey with her sexuality, mental health, and personal growth in modern times.  Through expressive artwork evoking both laughter and tears, Kabi movingly depicts not only her burgeoning sexuality but many other relatable aspects of her life.  Readers have praised the manga for its candid portrayal of LGBTQ+ themes and the human experience. Those interested in attending should mark their calendars for the 4th Sunday of each month at 5 pm. The organizers plan to introduce a "spice meter" rating system to indicate the book's content in advance. This unique book club promises an engaging discussion for anyone seeking to immerse themselves in the WLW book world.
