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 at the new Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore location (5943 Balboa Ave #100, San Diego, CA 92111). We are an eclectic group of women and so are our reading selections.

Network event

Eye Candy: A Monthly Feast of Beauty and Wonder
Sunday, October 24, 5:00 PM - 6:15 PM PDT

Follow Dale from REVEL on a guided trip down the rabbit hole of visual wonders. The meeting room will open at 4:30 to give you 30 minutes before the event to chat with one another if you're so inclined.

When the curtain rises at 5:00, you will be presented with a virtual candy box containing an assortment of 30 stunning photographs, video clips, and other visual treats. We'll take a minute to savor each flavor. You'll see the latest creations from the most talented and innovative artists, designers, architects, and scientists. Stuff so awesome that you may even want to augment your experience by indulging in a little toke, tincture, or edible before showtime.

Indulge with us! Your 👁 balls will thank you.
