Go On Girl! Book Club



The Go On Girl! Book Club is a nationally recognized, not-for-profit organization that supports authors of the Black African Diaspora by choosing one book per month for all club members to read. The Club reading list is formed twice a year. Members read a book each month, meet to discuss it, and then write both the author of the book and publisher to express their opinions about the work.
The organization as a whole recognizes the artistic achievements of these authors at annual award ceremonies, as well as gives monetary scholarships to students studying at HBCU’s and unpublished writers struggling to get their voices read. Since our founding in 1991, more than 30 chapters in 15 states have been organized across the country. Each chapter is limited to 12 members to keep the regular, monthly meetings intimate and manageable. Our members range in age from twenty something to sixty plus and they have varied professional backgrounds and personal interests. Learn more about the Go On Girl!
