The Black Feminist Book Club reads books by amazing Black women writers, centers the discussion from Black feminist perspectives, and celebrates classic and contemporary Black women authors across genres and styles, all in the comfort of an awesome gem of a feminist bookstore! Charis Circle board chair Susana Morris is the facilitator of this group. All community members are invited to participate with the acknowledgment that this is a space that centers Black women’s thoughts, creativity, and lived experiences. We are reading short story collections in the spring and summer:
May: How Long Til Black Future Month?, N.K. Jemisin
June: Whatever Happened to Interracial Love?, Kathleen Collins
July: How to Love a Jamaican, Alexia Arthurs
August: Drinking Coffee Elsewhere, ZZ Packer
September: Girl, Woman, Other, Bernardine Evaristo
This is a Charis Circle From Margin to Center Literary Event and the suggested donation is $5, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Three-time Hugo Award winner and NYT bestselling author N. K. Jemisin challenges and delights readers with thought-provoking narratives of destruction, rebirth, and redemption that sharply examine modern society in her first collection of short fiction, which includes never-before-seen stories.
