The Go On Girl! Book Club is a nationally recognized, not-for-profit organization that supports authors of the Black African Diaspora by choosing one book per month for all club members to read. The Club reading list is formed twice a year. Members read a book each month, meet to discuss it, and then write the author of the book to express their opinions about the work. The organization as a whole recognizes the artistic achievements of these authors at annual award ceremonies. Since our founding in 1991, more than 30 chapters have been organized across the country.
