Strut Book Club reads Bloom by Kevin Panetta

February 24   7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

For the month of February we are reading Kevin Panetta’s’ graphic novel “Bloom.”

Join us February 24th at 7:30 PM on the second floor of Strut for some wine, little snacks and great conversations about queer literature. Please make sure to read the entire book beforehand and come ready to discuss your thoughts.

Don’t forget, folks: we get a discount at Dog Eared Books in the Castro

About the Book:
Ari is dying to move to the big city with his ultra-hip band—if he can just persuade his dad to let him quit his job at their struggling family bakery. But while interviewing candidates for his replacement, Ari meets Hector, an easygoing guy who loves baking as much as Ari wants to escape it. As they become closer over batches of bread, love is ready to bloom. Writer Kevin Panetta and artist Savanna Ganucheau concoct a delicious recipe of intricately illustrated baking scenes and blushing young love, in which the choices we make can have terrible consequences, but the people who love us can help us grow.
About the Author
Kevin Panetta is a Washington, DC based comic book and graphic novel writer. He has written licensed children’s comics from Boom! Studios. His first creator-owned series, Zodiac Starforce, debuted from Dark Horse Comics in August 2015.
