Chicago Reading Africa was inspired by Kinna Reads' Africa Reading Challenge. We primarily operate as a book discussion group for African writing but we also explore other narrative forms (storytelling, music, film, and other visual arts).
If you are interested in reading books from the African diaspora (with emphasis on authors from Africa and the Caribbean), join us!
Please note that Chicago Reading Africa operates with a pay-what-you-can dues policy. At each discussion, we ask our members to contribute whatever amount they can to help sustain our Meetup site, bring you our bi-monthly newsletters, and plan for a bigger future.
