Discussion: "Children of Blood and Bone" by Tomi Adeyemi
Looking forward to discussing this young adult novel with you this month! Hope you can join us! :) ---------------------- Purchasing the book: or Book Description: "Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls. But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope. Now Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good. Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers—and her growing feelings for an enemy." Location: TBD for now but we will update you as the event approaches! :)

    What we're about

    Reading a book is fun, but following it up with an awesome in-depth discussion and sharing of ideas and opinions (preferably over snacks and tea) is *even more* fun. We'll be covering it all, from dismantling the master's house with Audre Lorde to exploring Afrofuturism and black women in sci-fi/fantasy with Octavia Butler and Nnedi Okorafor to dissecting the works of Wangechi Mutu and Kara Walker, and everything in between, to the left and the right, above and below. This group is for black readers who seek and want to connect with other equally dope black readers. All ages and genders welcome.
