Pride Book Club: The Verifiers

July 18, 2023 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

Claudia is used to disregarding her fractious family’s model-minority expectations: she has no interest in finding either a conventional career or a nice Chinese boy. She’s also used to keeping secrets from them, such as that she prefers girls—and that she’s just been stealth-recruited by Veracity, a referrals-only online-dating detective agency. 

A lifelong mystery reader who wrote her senior thesis on Jane Austen, Claudia believes she’s landed her ideal job. But when a client vanishes, Claudia breaks protocol to investigate—and uncovers a maelstrom of personal and corporate deceit. Part literary mystery, part family story, The Verifiers is a clever and incisive examination of how technology shapes our choices, and the nature of romantic love in the digital age.

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.
