  3. Hi Troy, I'm actually in contact with my local NAACP, but they have not been very responsive to emails and phone calls. Do you have a contact for how I can acquire tickets to attend this event?

  6. Nice cover. Please keep us (Word Lovers) posted on the book release.
  7. Thanks a bunch! That'll help us out alot. We're glad to help with the reviews :-)
  8. Kudos to you for giving providing us with a literary hub. Your site and business are unique and much needed. Also, I agree that we need to do better and that it will take time--and hard work. Our schools (in the South) don't do a good job of promoting the arts, so our Club is working hard to reverse that trend.
  9. I think I understand your line of thinking, so I'll reflect on your post a little more. Quickly, I want to point out that reading, as you inferred, was not always a black privilege, so it is of little concern to many that white people do not read. Our focus is on the black community and the way they approach and interact with literacy because we know that reading truly is fundamental. Whereas most white people don't read, most black people can't, at least not on their lexile level, so that's a big difference. Also, I don't buy into the socioeconomic status problem be
  10. First let me say that my thoughts/opinions are my own. However, our Club was founded because we saw a need to help promote literacy, so I just want to be clear that I'm not speaking on behalf of the Club in this discussion. When I saw the post about Black People Don't Read, I responded as Tanisca. Please note that in the record. So, I live in an urban area, not far from the inner city, but I do research in education so my statement about the gun was not meant as an exaggeration. Also, I think we tend to want to believe all the good things about the best of us and ignore the facts

  12. Not enough Black people read. It is a fact proven by research and tons of data undergirding that minority children struggle in reading and perform poorly in reading and math compared to their non-minority counterparts. While there are factions of us who read, there are far too few of us that do. Inner city youth are more inclined to pick up a gun than a book. The more important question is how do we change the narrative? I have a book and literary club where we promote creative writing and the literature arts, two things that are not promoted here in the "dirty south," but generally speaking,

  17. Hi Troy, We are primarily looking for books by self-published authors who have published within the last three years. We are open to reading fiction, drama, memoirs, historical fiction; our only exception is erotica and books we consider the "thug genre," e.g. Iceberg Slim, Sex Chronicles, etc. We have an expanded list of traditionally published books, so we are not looking for those. However, we are having a difficult time finding quality books written by indie authors, which we need to read to support the mission of our book club. We welcome your assistance as we
  18. Thanks, Kwaku. We're checking it out now. In the mean time, please visit http://taniscawilson.com/word-lovers/ to find out more about us.

We are a highly selective book club and decided during our business meeting to increase the # of books we read from 6 to 8. I'll be updating that info on the site soon. Thank you for re
  19. Hi, I'm Tanisca, current president of Word Lovers Book & Literary Club. We are looking for self-published books by African-American authors for our 2019-2020 reading list.
