We have only ten days left in our fundraiser for Black Queer Studies Collection at the University of Texas Libraries. So far, we have raised over $15,000 – thank you for your generous donations!
I’d like to highlight some of the books we’ve added to the Black Queer Studies Collection recently, in case you’re looking for summer reading recommendations:
- A new ebook edition of the landmark Talking at the Gates: A Life of James Baldwin
- The Essential June Jordan, an exciting new collection by the legendary poet
- The powerful memoir from pastor and writer Lenny Duncan, United States of Grace : A Memoir of Homelessness, Addiction, Incarceration, and Hope
- Soulstar, the conclusion to the award-winning fantasy trilogy, the Kingston Cycle by C. L. Polk
I love that each of these works is so different – they highlight the diversity of genres in the collection and showcase legendary authors like Baldwin and Jordan alongside exciting new writers. Your gift helps us acquire more books like these and make them available to the UT community.
Please help us spread the word so we can meet our $25,000 goal by July 9th, so that we can build this collection for generations to come!
