Diversity is Lit is a book club created to support BIPOC authors and expand our bookshelves. Over in our Goodreads group, we vote in a poll and choose from 5 books by BIPOC authors in the middle of the month, then read the highest voted book the following month. At the end of the month, we have a fun and thoughtful discussion with friends in a livestream on my YouTube channel (writehollydavis).
In light of the Black Lives Matter movement, I felt compelled to find a way I could make lasting changes for Black communities by supporting Black authors. As a biracial writer, I was disappointed in the number of books by BIPOC authors I've read. To create permanent change, I created this book club so that I and others could enrich their reading lists.
You can vote for the book of the month, recommend books to read, and more on our Goodreads group page, the main hub of this book club! And follow us for updates on Twitter and Instagram, @DiversityIsLit.
