What is Mocha Readers?: Mocha Readers is a monthly book club that focuses on exploring the black experience through books (fiction and non-fiction). We primarily read works written by African-American authors featuring African-American characters.   We are a group of people who love to read, and are looking for a nice, warm, inviting place where we can discuss books and socialize.

What Type of Books Do You Read?: As stated above most of our books have been written by African-American author and feature African-American characters.  We read both fiction and non-fiction books.  We read 1 non-fiction book for every 2 fiction books.  There is no preferred genre, in fact we try to select books from a wide range of genres.

Do You Have To Be Black To Join?: No.  While our membership is mostly African-American, you don't have to be African-American to join.  All that we ask is that you have an open mind and enjoy reading.

Do You Have To Be Female To Join?: No.  Most of our members are female but we encourage males to join.

What Day and Time Do You Meet: Meetings will be held on the second Saturday of each month at 2:00pm.

Where are Meeting Held?: Meetings are held at Alaska Coffee Roasting Company in North Miami.

Are There Membership Dues?: No. As of now there are no fee associated with joining this group.  We may change this policy in the future.

Can I Advertise My Book In This Group?: We have several members that are authors.  While I don't mind members mentioning that they have written a book during meetings, please refrain from posting direct links to your book in comment sections or on the site.
