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.
We’re meeting next on Saturday, April 11th at 5 pm.
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 and she expressed that this club is designed to amplify the voices of diverse authors, not to restrict their audience.
For February we will be reading Diamond Doris by Doris Payne.
Even if you haven’t read the book, we still invite you to come by and be a part of the conversation.
