#ReadBlack Book Club is changing it up in 2021

Our first year of #ReadBlack was a great success! You told us you wanted more, and the Kindred team will now be offering a monthly version. This time around, we’ll mostly focus on a single title every month, but we’ll have some round-robin fun like last year, too! 

Starting in February, join us on Zoom the fourth Saturday of the month for a facilitated conversation about a book each month, with the exception of June and December (see more about that further down). These books will cover a broad expanse of Black culture, literature, and history, and will be both fiction and nonfiction. So whether you prefer historical sagas or epic sci-fi adventures, there will be something for you. 

We’ve already picked books for February and March, and subsequent books will be selected on a quarterly basis. 

In June and December, drop in for the familiar round-robin book share style we featured at #ReadBlack events last year. Attendees can share one or multiple books on a theme, and we’ll make a list of all the books for the website, so more readers can discover something new. 

  • June’s discussion will be a repeat of Read Black Pride, where we’ll talk about books centering Black members of the LGBTQ+ community. 
  • In December we’ll Read New Black Books, and extoll the greatness of some of the books by Black authors that have come out in 2021
