Woke & Well-Read Book Club: The Bluest Eye

Woke & Well-Read is a new book club starting this fall, facilitated by Jamila Latham. The group meets the third week every month - after attendance at the first meeting overfilled the space, the club is now meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday nights to accommodate everyone. You can register for either night each month - we'll be discussing the same book both nights.

Because the Tuesday and Wednesday night discussions sold out, we've added a Thursday night discussion this month: Registration is free but is now required in advance so we make space for everyone.

Our October selection is The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison.

Woke & Well-Read will look at life through the eyes of African American authors. We will explore some of the legendary greats (that some of us are ashamed we have not read yet), as well as contemporary favorites and writers who are up-and-coming.

Read more about the club or email Jamila with questions.
