Y’all, I’m so hype. Tonight at 9PM EST, the book club I’m a part of Ninjas Be Readin’ (or NBR for short) is discussing the first three essays in Kiese Laymon’s “How To Slowly Kill Yourself and Others in America.” You know how I feel about this book, and I am really excited to be one of the co-moderators for the discussion. Join by following hashtag #NBR and weigh in!
DopeReads is excited to partner with Teaching for Change and Busboys & Poets to bring comedian/DC native/social media swag-having author Baratunde Thurston to DC to discuss his book How to Be Black! The book was recently released in paperback, which you can cop here for the low. This memoir/satire (memoitire? satoir?) is the perfect stocking stuffer or Kwanzaa gift for the incense burner in your life. Look out for more info in the coming weeks. We bout to party for paperbacks, y’all. Let’s get it!
