GCLS Event List
The GCLS holds and participates in various events throughout the year in our efforts to connect readers to authors and their books.
16th Annual Conference - Virtual Conference
The Golden Crown Literary Society's annual conference is the premier lesbian literary event for both authors
and readers. This event brings together readers, fans, writers, editors and publishers to celebrate the best in lesbian-themed literature.
GCLS Online Book Club
In September 2019, GCLS launched a monthly, online book club–exclusive to GCLS members–with a moderated discussion of a featured book, and a Q & A with the participating author. The book club promotes GCLS authors writing women-loving-women fiction and non-fiction in our community, and provides our members with a value-added networking opportunity outside of our annual GCLS conference.
The inaugural GCLS Book Club event welcomed author, Ann McMan (Bywater Books) and her Lammy-Award winning book, Beowulf for Cretins. September featured Bold Strokes Books publisher and author, Radclyffe, and her book Love to the Rescue. GCLS Writing Academy alum, Karen Richard (Bedazzled Ink Publishing) was our October author with her book of short stories, Women of the Year. We concluded our pilot year with GCLS Trailblazer and author, Karin Kallmaker (Bella Books) and the 25th Anniversary Edition of her classic novel, Painted Moon.
