The Over the Rainbow List, which recommends and celebrates LGBT books for adult readers, has just been announced for 2014. Michel Marc Bouchard’s play, Tom at the Farm (2013), has made the list as the only book in the Drama category. This is the first year a Talon title has been chosen.
The list is created each year by the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Round Table (GLBTRT) of the American Library Association (ALA). The reading list is intended as a bibliography of books that exhibit commendable literary quality and significant authentic GLBT content and are recommended for adults over age 18. It is not meant to be all-inclusive but is intended as an annual core list for readers and librarians searching for recommendations for a cross-section of the previous year’s titles.
