A Week or so ago, a friend of mine reached out to me suggesting I start a Black Girl Magic Book Club and I sat with it. So I posted a status on facebook asking for opinions (the support was overwhelmingly encouraging) and one of my sorority sisters mentioned her son not having books that he would be interested in and I sat with that too. With that, I thought of Magical Black Kids Book Club!

This book club will feature middle grade and Young Adult books that are fantasy/sci-fi, basically ones with some sort of magical or technical systems in place! Kids are the focus but adults are welcome to join (Families should definitely read together)! I’m in the process of figuring out how to make the discussions special for the kids. I also have an awesome member of the club working on a logo! Over the course of the last two weeks, my excitement has grown and I hope yours will too!

The first book has been chosen and it isssssssssssssssssssss…

Shuri by the Amazing Nic Stone!

Here is the link to the synopsis! Feel free to order it to add to your personal library or request it from your local library (either way supports the author)!

I really hope you decide to join us! I will announce the books and discussion dates here, my @bookishgirlmagic IG account & emails via the mailing list so sign up by clicking this link!

Thank you so much for your Support and I look forward to lots of Bookish Banter in the future with you!

I’m reader who has a fierce love for books written by authors of color & belief in the importance of supporting them! My mission is to amplify their voices and work so this generation and all the others after them will have literature that will reflect them.
