Today is National King Day

January 23 is National King Day Graphic

On a day dedicated to kings, we can think of nothing better than reading a book with a drag king!

Drag Queens have become synonymous with story hours of late, but seldom does the Drag King get the accolades he deserves. Well, today is the day that changes, starting with three delightful books with drag kings in them.

To be honest, we’re not entirely sure what’s up with this holiday. Is it actually for kings? People named King? We have no idea! In fact, we could only find one mention of it online, and given that the last time we in America had a king, it didn’t go well, we’re a little confused. But we (and by we, we mostly mean TB) have never let that stop us from charging ahead before!

We briefly considered stories about royalty, but as it happens, that’s one of the reading challenge categories this week. We’re already swimming in royalty recommendations, but not a single one had a drag king in it! So here they are, three sapphic books with drag kings for your reading enjoyment today!


Curious what tomorrow’s special day will be?

Make sure to check back each day for your daily calendar trivia, along with more great book recommendations! Any day spent reading sapphic books is a day to be celebrated!
