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.

While the Well-Read Black Girl Book Club is focused on empowering Black women writers, we encourage readers who identify as genderqueer, non-binary, or others who feel inspired by what we're doing to join us and be a part of our community.

Left Bank Books will be working with Well-Read Black Girl Book Club to bring this wonderful program to St. Louis. The group is inviting new members to join us as we get started. It is free and open to the public. If you are interested in joining the group or would like more information, please email Shane. We also encourage you and your friends to show up and experience the group for yourself. We will try to find a day that works best for the majority of people interested as the group progresses. The books will be offered at 20% off the month before and the month of the reading group both online and in the store.

**Note that all meetings have been moved virtually** Contact shane.m@left-bank.com for your invitation to join.
**Note new times. Now meeting at Left Bank Books in-person. Virtual option still available.**
