Children of Blood and Bone
Children of Blood and Bone is a fantasy novel by Nigerian-American novelist Tomi Adeyemi, published on March 6, 2018. The story follows Zélie Adebola, who sets out on a task to restore magic in the country of Orïsha. Adeyemi drew inspiration from Yoruba culture and Western fantasy fiction like Harry Potter and Avatar: The Last Airbender. Adeyemi has said the idea for the novel came after a trip to Brazil, describing: "I was in a gift shop there and the African gods and goddesses were depicted in such a beautiful and sacred way … it really made me think about all the beautiful images we never see featuring black people".

What we're about

We're looking to connect with folks who love to read and like to share their opinions over a good meal or glass of wine. We're focused on diving into rich literary works, steering clear of the more pulpy, romance-led fiction.

One month we may dig into a classic like Morrison or Baldwin and the next meeting we might explore the writings of contemporary Black authors like Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie or Zadie Smith.

We just want to enjoy being grown folks reading grown-up material and have smart conversations over some grown-up drinks. If that sounds fun to you, join us!
