Listen Up: Glory Edim on Diversifying Your Bookshelf
This week, Glory Edim stops by to talk about founding and building the Well-Read Black Girl community—and what it was like editing some of the best writers in the whole dang world for her new anthology of the same name.
P.S. It’s fall! Which means it’s time for the Miro Tee—but they’re going fast. Slip into one for 10% off with the code AFEWTHINGS while you can.
Check out Well-Read Black Girl to join the club, to attend an event (like their festival on 11/10?!), and, obviously, to buy Glory’s book!
Just a handful of the black authors you should be reading (many of whom are featured in the WRBG book, even): Jamia Wilson, Renée Watson, Eloise Greenfield, Maya Angelou, Nikki Giovanni, Jesmyn Ward, Alice Walker, Roxane Gay, Lesley Nneka Arimah, Tayari Jones, Lynn Nottage, and Jacqueline Woodson.
Plus, extra endorsements of two new fall hardbacks, Unapologetic by Charlene Carruthers and Michelle Obama’s Becoming, that you can pre-order now.
If you’re in the market for more community organizing, read up on Blackstar Film Festival and POC in Publishing.
