BLACK GIRLS BOOK CLUB PRESENTS: black girls are magic brunch
Sat 29 October 2016, 11:00 – 15:00 BST
BGBOOKCLUB is very proud to present our very first black girls are magic book club brunch where we will be discussing Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche's brilliant AMERICANAH.
In the spirit of traditional book clubs we will be sending copies in advance - giving you opportunity to read (or for some of you reintroduc and revisit) the story and get to know the fantastic characters
what to expect:
You will receive the book and menu choices within 3 weeks of registration. If you already have the book and do not want another copy you can choose the brunch+booze option. Please note this option does not include a goody bag.
Who we are: Black Girls Book Club (or bad gal book club, if you're nasty) is a collective of black women seeking to create a platform that allows us to celebrate our excellence and discuss our experiences with likeminded bg's who are navigating life as a millennial in the city.
We want to bring together a community of women and girls allowing them to network in a safe haven where they can chill, chat and catch plenty plenty vibes.
Every attendee of the black girls are magic brunch will receive entrance to the brunch venue which will be held in a private dining setting with its own bar, the book, brunch, booze and a goody bag.
what you need to know:
Whilst the black girls are magic brunch is celebrating black women it is open to all who wish to attend. However, please be aware that our mission is to create a space which allows black women to come together on a positive vibe and we won't tolerate any individual who seeks to derail that. BGBOOKCLUB is a judgement free zone and as such as we want to create an environment that allows them to be great, open and honest without any fear.
please note tickets are non-refundable
