The OutBook Book Club is supported by The Palm Springs Cultural Center and the Palm Springs Public Library. Selections are chosen by group members and highlight a mix of new LGBTQ+ releases and influential classics.
OutBook meets on the first Wednesday of the month in the upstairs VIP room at the Palm Springs Cultural Center, unless otherwise noted, from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. The book discussion starts at 7:00 p.m. (from 6:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. is a social mixer).
