Well-Read Black Girl Book Club: Home

 

 

WELCOME TO THE WRBG BOOK CLUB at JBS

The Stamper Family Library at John Burroughs School has created a book club based on Glory Edim's Well-Read Black Girl Book Club.  Edim started her book club in 2015 and since then it has steadily grown into a thriving online community.  The stated goal of the WRBGBC is to showcase the universality of Black women through literature.

Remember that moment when you first encountered a character who seemed to be written just for you? That feeling of belonging remains with readers the rest of their lives—but not everyone regularly sees themselves in the pages of a book.  Glory Edim brings together original essays by some of the best black women writers to shine a light on how important it is that we all—regardless of gender, race, religion, or ability—have the opportunity to find ourselves in literature.
