With over 30 chapters in 13 states, Go On Girl! Book Club is the largest national reading organization in the U.S. for black women. Founded in 1991, members meet face to face in their respective cities to discuss the club's monthly reading selection. Feedback on each book is shared with the authors and publishers. Each year GOG hosts an Author Awards event to honor established writers and provide writing awards and scholarships to new talent. Through the years literary luminaries such as Bebe Moore Campbell, Sam Greenlee, Pearl Cleage, Brandon Massey, Terry McMillan and J. California Cooper have come in person to accept their Go On Girl! Book Club Awards.  Learn more »
