The Ivy League Book Club was founded July 2010 by Simbi Animashaun through a desire to connect with Sorors of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. on an intellectual level. However, we decided to extend the invitation to all professional women residing in the Maryland/Washington D.C./Virginia area. Our mission is to read good books of any genre and support African American literature. Starting 2011, book club meetings will be held every 3rd Sunday of: January, March, May, July, September, and November. Each member will have the opportunity to host and choose a book for the club to read.
