The Black-ish Book Club will explore the literary landscape through lenses of color. We aim to host stimulating conversations about buzz-worthy books by Black writers and writers of color that "do it for the culture." Each month, we'll explore an exemplary work of fiction, nonfiction, or poetry relevant to the moment, and encourage discussions that are entertaining and enlightening.
The Black-ish Book Club meets online via the Zoom platform on the last Sunday of each month from 3:00-5:00 p.m.
Unfortunately, this book club is full and not accepting new members. Please select another book club or email email@example.com to put your name on a waiting list.
