books, brunch, and black women is a social organization meant for the millennial black woman! Founded June 2017 in Atlanta, GA, books, brunch, and black women has quickly expanded to Birmingham, AL, Charlotte, NC, New York City, NY, and Los Angeles, CA. Each month we get together as girlfriends to talk all things life, love, and career over tasty brunch and delicious mimosas! When we're not reading, we’re engaging as leaders, embracing our inner beauty, and enjoying self care activities! Join us for our monthly brunch in addition to our Annual Holiday Party, Wellness Retreat, and Girls Night Out!

Join us this October as we read Tomi Adeyemi's Children of Blood and Bone.
They Killed My Mother.
They Took Our Magic.
They Tried to Bury Us.
Now We Rise.
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.
