I am super excited to announce Literary Black Girl’s first ever reading community! Over the next three months, June through August, I invite you (and your friends!) to join me as we read and come together over two books monthly. We are going to read one fiction book and one nonfiction book each month, and I will develop a reading and discussion guide for you to use as you read. I’ll be posting here and on Instagram over the course of each month, and we can gather in the comments sections to share thoughts and takeaways.
Please join the official Summer Reading Challenge mailing list to have the reading and discussion guides sent to you via email. Subscribe here.
June’s books are Barracoon: The Story of the Last “Black Cargo” by Zora Neal Hurston and When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir by Patrisse Khan-Cullors and asha bandele.
I can’t wait to hear what you all gain from this summer’s reads! Let’s get to reading, ya’ll!
