What connects Eddie Izzard, a one woman circumnavigation of the world and a talking cat? To find out, have a look at Mapping the World, our contribution to this year’s LGBT History Month.

LGBT History Month is an annual event celebrated across the UK each February. Every year has a different theme and this year it’s ‘Mapping the World’.

Our recommended reads, both fiction and non-fiction, are tales from around the globe. As well as Eddie Izzard, circumnavigation by bike and kayak and the talking cat, you can discover post-war Amsterdam, unexpected New York and Queer London. If we’ve whetted your appetite, why not try some of our other recommended reads ‘LGBT Reads’ for adults, young adults and children?
