As this reminder from Green Apple Books and Ibram X. Kendi urges, let's not distance ourselves from books!
As we reduce the number of IRL events we have with our chapters, organizers are planning online meetups to share what we're all reading, offer reviews, and connect with book lovers around the world.
Below, find the current list of virtual Silent Book Clubs. We will add to this list as we learn about more. Please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you or your chapter are hosting a bookish hangout online.
The fun part of an online SBC meetup is that you can join any event in the world, so explore the other chapters and meet fellow readers in another city!
