The Diverse Books Club

what is the diverse books club?

We are a group of readers dedicated to learning about the world and our fellow humans. We value diversity in all its forms!

OUR ORIGIN STORY

In late summer of 2017, I decided my reading life needed a boost. I was reading a lot, but not reading widely enough. Enter a self-imposed challenge, to read more diverse literature and expand my understanding of the world around me. The DBC was born when I asked if anyone would be interested in joining me and to my surprise, many, many readers expressed a similar desire. As of January 2018, we have over 1k active members on Goodreads, 4k members on Instagram, and a team of 11 readers moderating the many facets of the DBC. Each month, we read a selection of books related to a diverse theme. We also feature author profiles, related resources, and classroom resources for our members on our Goodreads page!

Join us for discussions & more on Goodreads!

Follow along on Instagram @diversebooksclub and on Twitter @diversebookclub.
