Meristem Lives On in New LGBT Book Club

Posted By on Mon, Jan 11, 2010 at 4:16 PM


For most of the '90s, Meristem in Cooper-Young served as the city's only LGBT bookstore. It closed down in 1998, but a new women's book club has just launched in its honor.

The Meristem Book Club is open to all lesbian, bisexual, and straight women interested in reading books by women and LGBT authors. It meets on the first and third Monday and second Wednesday of every month at the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center (892 S. Cooper).

Members are expected to read at least part of the agreed-upon book, and all women will have an opportunity to share their thoughts and opinions during book club meetings.
