African American Authors Book Club

Meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 5:00 p.m.

The African American Authors Book Club is for anyone who is interested and who loves to read. The books are selected by members of the book club and are primarily books written by African American authors. Our objective is to broaden our knowledge of the many African American authors and their writings and just have fun reading.
