The American Booksellers Association partnered with Well-Read Black Girl founder Glory Edim to bring book club meetings to independent bookstores nationwide with the goal of amplifying diverse voices and supporting emerging writers of color.
From Kimberly Jones, former store manager of Little Shop of Stories (and YA author):
I feel so lucky to lead the Atlanta chapter of this book club hosted by Little Shop of Stories! Everyone is welcome! I had the privilege to get to know Glory a little at Children’s Institute and she expressed that this club is designed to amplify the voices of diverse authors, not to restrict their audience.
For November we will be reading a classic, The Coldest Winter Ever by Sister Souljah. It’s amazing!!
Even if you haven’t read the book, we still invite you to come by and be a part of the conversation. This is also our end of the year party, so it will be a potluck. Bring a dish or a drink and join in on the fun!!!
Here’s the Facebook link. If you have any questions you can post them here.
