Please join us for our final Queer Book Club of the year, where we will be discussing Ellen Kushner's classic fantasy of manners, Swordspoint!
The low city of Riverside, with its maze of streets and its houses fallen into disrepair, is a world apart from the shining Hill, with its fancy parties and mansions and hot chocolate. But the connections between them come in form of the swordsmen the nobles hire to fight their duels as proxies. Richard St. Vier is the most sought-after blade, and the duels draw him away from his lover, disgraced scholar Alec. But as an affair on the Hill gone awry leads to greater political intrigue, will Richard and Alec get pulled in over their heads?
A rich story with great characters and a propulsive plot, this store favourite has a lot to discuss. Come take part, and enjoy some refreshments, as well!
