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!
If you are interested in promoting your business, book, or some other creative work within Chicago Reading Africa, please do two things first:
1. Attend a Chicago Reading Africa event. We'd love to meet you. And it would be a good idea to see if your work fits within our scope.
2. Speak to Viva or Nina. At least one of us will always be present at a Chicago Reading Africa event. You can also email us through the contact button on our Meetup profiles.
