The Literary Ladies Book Club was established in Rahway, New Jersey by sisters, Sandi and Maria, in October 2008. As busy career women with little free time to enjoy friends, fellowship, adult conversation and a good “Girl’s Night Out”; the sisters decided to start a book club driven by their love of African American Literature and their shared desire to engage in honest, enthusiastic, enlightening discussions with other individuals that truly enjoy reading. In order to rise to their fullest and purest potential not only as readers but also as women, they encouraged members to empower one another by sharing ideas and materials throughout the month that promote personal growth and enhance awareness within literary, social, spiritual and economic areas. In a nutshell, the original eight members gathered with the purpose of creating unity, friendship, and sisterhood amongst positive women of color.
We are excited to have just celebrated our 7th anniversary with 10 vibrant members and will soon grow to 11 members in January 2016 when we induct our newest member. Presently, we are hard at work finalizing the details for our much anticipated upcoming Literary Lounge to be held on March 19, 2016 as well as our annual August bowling party. In addition, our members are busy writing literary reviews and scheduling authors to participate in future monthly discussions. Currently, approximately 80% percent of our monthly discussions entail author participation either in person or via video or phone conference.
Since earning the 2013 Black Pearls Literary Excellence Award, Literary Ladies Book Club looks forward to possessing a stronger presence in the literary world.
