Please join us! We will meet, via Zoom for now, once per month to talk and share our feelings about books we’ve read selected by our members. Everyone will have the opportunity to nominate books for future meetings.
We are meeting at 6pm on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. Criteria for book nominations include anything related to the African-American experience and any books written by black authors regardless of topics. To join, just send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to reading with you!
