Well-Read Black Girl Book Club

The Well-Read Black Girl Book Club is focused on empowering Black and Latinx writers. We encourage book club ambassadors to highlight classic novels written by  Black women (i.e. The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison) and bring visibility to debut authors like Elizabeth Acevedo, Brit Bennett, and Tomi Adeyemi. Our curated reading list celebrates the work of underrepresented writers and encourages readers who feel inspired by what we’re doing to be a part of our community.
