Brown Girls Read! at Word Up

December 15 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Brown Girls Read! is a bi-monthly reading circle for Black and Brown femme and women-identifie​d folk living in uptown areas. We read books written by dope authors of color and gather to explore how the literature relates to our life experiences as marginalized people.
