Queer Book Club: Every Heart a Doorway

Queer Book Club is a small but enthusiastic community that meets monthly to discuss queer-themed books spanning numerous genres. This month we’ll be meeting virtually to discuss Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire. Email johnna.percell@dc.gov for information on how to join.

"Children have always disappeared under the right conditions; slipping through the shadows under a bed or at the back of a wardrobe, tumbling down rabbit holes and into old wells, and emerging somewhere... else.

But magical lands have little need for used-up miracle children.

Nancy tumbled once, but now she's back. The things she's experienced... they change a person. The children under Miss West's care understand all too well. And each of them is seeking a way back to their own fantasy world.

But Nancy's arrival marks a change at the Home. There's a darkness just around each corner, and when tragedy strikes, it's up to Nancy and her new-found schoolmates to get to the heart of things.

No matter the cost.
