The Black Feminist Book Club Reads: A Song For You: My Life With Whitney Houston by Robyn Crawford

Event date: 
Thursday, January 23, 2020 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

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. To kick off 2020, we will begin with two special discussions before settling into a celebration of short story collections by Black women. Due to popular demand we will read and discuss A Song for You: My Life With Whitney Houston by Robyn Crawford in January, then switch gears for a celebration of Toni Morrison’s Sula in her birthday month of February before reading the following short story collections in the spring and summer:

March: Heads of the Colored People, Nafissa Thompson Spire 

April: How Long Til Black Future Month?, N.K. Jemisin 

May: Whatever Happened to Interracial Love?, Kathleen Collins

June: How to Love a Jamaican, Alexia Arthurs 

July: Drinking Coffee Elsewhere, ZZ Packer 

August: 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.
