Event Details

Join us for a great discussion. Each month we will read a new title from various genres and authors. New members are always welcome.

Registration required.

In September we will be discussing The Other Black Girl by Zakiya Dalila Harris. This title is available as an ebook or an audiobook from DownloadLibrary.

Get Out meets The Devil Wears Prada in this eclectic debut about the tension that unfurls when two young Black women meet against the starkly white backdrop of New York City book publishing. Twenty-six-year-old editorial assistant Nella Rogers is tired of being the only Black employee at Wagner Books. Fed up with the isolation and microaggressions, she's thrilled when Harlem-born and bred Hazel starts working in the cubicle beside hers. They've only just started comparing natural hair care regimens, though, when a string of uncomfortable events elevates Hazel to Office Darling, and Nella is left in the dust. Then the notes begin to appear on Nella's desk: LEAVE WAGNER NOW. It's hard to believe Hazel is behind these hostile messages. But Nella starts to spiral and obsess over the sinister forces at play, she soon realizes that there's a lot more at stake than just her career. A whip-smart and dynamic thriller and sly social commentary that is perfect for anyone who has ever felt manipulated, threatened, or overlooked in the workplace, The Other Black Girl will keep you on edge of your seat until the very last twist.

In October we will be reading A Town Called Solace by Mary Lawson.
