Mission

While the Well-Read Black Girl Book Club is focused on empowering Black women writers, we encourage readers who identify as genderqueer, non-binary, or others who feel inspired by what we’re doing to join us and be a part of our community. 

The goal of #WRBGBookClub is simple yet profound: “Our mission is to support diverse voices and emerging writers of color, one book club meeting at a time. Our literary community is inclusive, we strive to inspire connections between bookstores, readers, and authors”-  #wellreadblackgirl

Cinderella Is Dead

by Kalynn Bayron

It’s 200 years after Cinderella found her prince, but the fairy tale is over. Teen girls are now required to appear at the Annual Ball, where the men of the kingdom select wives based on a girl’s display of finery. If a suitable match is not found, the girls not chosen are never heard from again.

Sixteen-year-old Sophia would much rather marry Erin, her childhood best friend, than parade in front of suitors. At the ball, Sophia makes the desperate decision to flee, and finds herself hiding in Cinderella’s mausoleum. There, she meets Constance, the last known descendant of Cinderella and her step sisters. Together they vow to bring down the king once and for all--and in the process, they learn that there’s more to Cinderella’s story than they ever knew . . .

This fresh take on a classic story will make readers question the tales they’ve been told, and root for girls to break down the constructs of the world around them.

MeetMontgomery :

As a proud book nerd, I am ecstatic that Second Star to the Right Books has the first Well Read Black Girl chapter in Colorado. At university, I decided to further my love of reading by majoring in children's literature, with a focus on diversity (or lack thereof) in what is being published. We are doing better, but have a long way to go. My belief in life is every that child (and adult) is capable of not only reading a book, but being a reader. We all just need that one book that speaks to us. That's why I think Well Read Black Girl is so important, we can read books that accurately reflect parts of our lives with people who share similar backgrounds, while also reveling in our differences. I also love reading and learning about other marginalized groups and reflecting on how to be a better overall ally. I'm so honored to lead this group and can't wait to sneak a few young adult and middle grades in to our selections while we are it!
