April eNewsletterAALBC.com’s eNewsletter is published 12 times a year and has been published continuously since 1998.  It is an excellent source for information on books written by or about to people of African descent. 

You will also find articles on the publishing industry, information on book festivals, and a variety of resources for readers and writers.  

One thing our eNewsletter does not include is a lot of advertising.  Other than a single eNewsletter sponsor, our newsletter is supported by your $11.99 annual subscription.  Your support is appreciated and needed to continue to bring you the type of content you'll find valuable.

We also send one, curated eNewsletter from a sponsor we believe will interest our readers.  Consider sponsoring a dedicated eNewsletter.
