Well-Read Black Girl Book Group

"Our goal is to introduce a cohort of diverse writers to future generations--contemporary authors who are non-binary, queer, trans, and disabled. To address inequalities and improve communities through reading and reflecting on the works of Black women." –Founder Glory Edim 

We hold space for any person of color outside of the binary. We hold communities accountable for our safety and well being. We are forever pro black. We meet the fourth Sunday of the month at 1 pm. Book group members recieve 10% off the book group pick. Women & Children First bookseller Delaney facilitates the group. Any questions can be directed to their email deuban1@artic.edu

"I am tempted to describe Petry as a magician for the many ways that The Street amazes, but this description cheapens her talent. A magician’s tricks can all be unmasked if a person looks behind the curtain or probes the mysterious chest until she finally discovers the false bottom. Petry is a gifted artist. There are no stunts here or sleight of hand. This novel, like real life, is rife with seeming contradictions and layered with complex truths. And like the human experience this book is riddled with pain, but somehow powered by hope." --Tayari Jones, author of An American Marriage
