About Go On Girl! Book Club
The Go On Girl! Book Club is a nationally recognized reading club committed to fostering an awareness of and appreciation for the diverse literary works by authors of the Black Diaspora. Our deep and authentic respect for literature aligns with our not-for-profit status whereby we earmark the vast majority of organizational funds to furthering our mission and celebrating our love of literature. Since our founding in 1991, the organization has organically grown into more than 51 chapters consisting of 500+ members in cities across the country.
Every month, we read literary works, meet to discuss them, and then send our review of the work to the authors and their publishing houses. The reading list is a study in variety and includes works in the following categories: anthology, autobiography/biography, historical, international, literary classic, mystery/suspense/thriller, new author, novel/pop fiction, science-fiction/fantasy/horror/speculative fiction, short stories, and social commentary/cultural criticism. The culmination of our reading occurs each year when we recognize the artistic achievements of these authors at our annual Author Awards celebration.
