Reading the Rainbow is hosted by the LGBTQ+ library staff of the Dauphin County Library System in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. We work with tens of thousands of books. When we come across good own-voiced queer literature, we want everyone to know about it! And who doesn't love discussing a good book with other book geeks? From scifi and contemporary, to romance and YA, we'll read it all, as long as it's good and gay!
