Welcome to Noname Book Club! We’re an online/irl community dedicated to uplifting POC voices. We do this by highlighting two books each month written by authors of color. In addition to building community with folks across the country, we also send our monthly book picks to incarcerated comrades through our Prison Program.

The New York meet-up will be at Word Up Community Bookshop Librería Comunitaria in Washington Heights. Word Up Community Bookshop/Libreria Communitaria is located at 2113 Amsterdam Avenue (corner of 165th Street) in Manhattan. Subways: A, C or #1 train to 168th Street (walk south to 165th St, turn left, then walk east to Amsterdam Avenue).

This month's pick is Vagabonds!: A Novel by Eloghosa Osunde.

In compliance with Word Up Community Safety guidelines, all attendees for this event must wear a mask inside.
