So, you’ve been at home and maybe already read hot-selling titles like Girl, Woman, Other by Bernardine Evaristo, Mostly Dead Things by Kristen Arnett, and Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Abertalli. You might have also Netflix-binged through Queer Eye, I Am Not Okay with This, AJ and the Queen, and Special, gave a couple movies like Alex Strangelove and Let It Snow a spin (or several). Now you’re thinking you want to find new-to-you LGBTQIA+ fiction titles, but the Library is closed and you can’t browse the shelves. We got you and we are always here to recommend some great books for you.

The following title is exclusive to Hoopla:
Nirvana is Here By Aaron Hamburger
Ari Silverman finds himself having to confront a past he kept buried when two events occur: his ex-husband is accused of sexually harassing a university student where Ari is on the committee to determine a charge, and to make that decision, Ari connects with his former high school crush, Justin Jackson, who is now happily married to a woman. During these events, Ari reflects on his adolescence on being a Jewish boy in the Detroit suburbs of the 1990s, his passion for Nirvana, and being haunted by the sexual trauma he suffered at the hands of his classmate and neighbor, Mark. This title is available as eAudio and as eBook on Hoopla.
