Reading & Conversation: Casey McQuiston “The Pairing” (w/ Rachael Lippincott & Alyson Derrick)

August 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We know you’re all going to freak the eff out here, because Casey McQuiston (Red, White, and Royal Blue; One Last Stop) is so White Whale it’s bonkers: YES, THEY ARE COMING TO PITTSBURGH on tour for their wildly anticipated new novel! Meet us at the Church for some queer romcom shenanigans!

In The Pairing, two bisexual exes accidentally book the same European food and wine tour and challenge each other to an international hookup competition to prove they’re over each other—but sometimes a taste of everything only makes you crave what you can’t have.

“With lovable queer heroes and zany side characters aplenty … it’s a mouthwatering feast.” – Publishers Weekly

“Move over ‘hot girl summer’—’hot bisexual summer’ is ready for its moment and Casey McQuiston’s new novel The Pairing is here to usher it in.” – USA Today
