WRBG Grand Rapids -

Well-Read Black Girl Grand Rapids Summer Series

We Are LIT! Grand Rapids is a multicultural bookshop selling new, diverse books curated to connect readers of all ages to their interest. Through its membership with the American Booksellers Association (ABA) and in partnership with Well-Read Black Girl (WRBG) founder, Glory Edim, We Are LIT is excited to collaborate with a couple of WRBG's to bring a book club summer series to Grand Rapids!

 

The goal of the partnership between Edim, the ABA, and its member bookstores is to “amplify diverse voices and support emerging writers of color.” To support this goal and build upon its own mission, We Are LIT, through its WRBG Summer Series, seeks to unite Black Women who make up West Michigan's literary community to foster connections and create a culture around books.
