What we're about

We are a group of black women who love to read, want to read more and meet like-minded women. We are here to inspire women to read, share literature, fellowship, and encourage others in the joy of reading. We meet in Inglewood, CA at Darby Park on the first Saturday of the month. We are an eclectic group of women and so are our reading selections. Find out more on our website http://www.mochagirlsread.com

MGR Book Club Meeting - Slay In Your Lane | The Black Girl Bible

** NOTE THIS MEETING IS ON THE 1st SUNDAY** (AVOIDING VALENTINES DAY CONFLICTS) SYNOPSIS The long-awaited, inspirational guide to life for a generation of black British women inspired to make lemonade out of lemons, and find success in every area of their lives. ‘This book is a gift for anyone who wants to better understand what Black women and girls are up against – and the tremendous resources they draw upon as they make their way in the world’ Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and founder of LeanIn.Org and OptionB.Org Slay In Your Lane is a brilliant book about what it is like to be a woman, black, and a Londoner in 2018. Everyone should read it’ Sadiq Khan ‘Black women today are well past making waves – we’re currently creating something of a tsunami. Women who look like us, grew up in similar places to us, talk like us, are shaping almost every sector of society.’ From education to work to dating, this inspirational, honest and provocative book recognises and celebrates the strides black women have already made while providing practical advice for those who want to do the same and forge a better, visible future. Illustrated with stories from best friends Elizabeth Uviebinené and Yomi Adegoke’s own lives, and using interviews with dozens of the most successful black women in Britain – including BAFTA Award-winning director Amma Asante, British Vogue publisher Vanessa Kingori and Olympic gold medallist Denise Lewis – Slay In Your Lane is essential reading for a generation of black women inspired to find success in every area of their lives.
