Pride Book Club: The House on the Cerulean Sea

September 13, 2023 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

Linus Baker is a by-the-book case worker in the Department in Charge of Magical Youth. He’s tasked with determining whether six dangerous magical children are likely to bring about the end of the world. 

Arthur Parnassus is the master of the orphanage. He would do anything to keep the children safe, even if it means the world will burn. And his secrets will come to light.

The House in the Cerulean Sea is an enchanting love story, masterfully told, about the profound experience of discovering an unlikely family in an unexpected place – and realizing that family is yours. 

Join us at Capital City Pride Book Club where it is our mission to provide a safe space for all members of the LGBTQ community (+allies) to read and discuss LGBTQ literature; stories that are not only for us, but that are often by us as a community.
