Meet Divas Read 2 Book Club

Divas Read 2 Book Club consists of African American women who get together to Read, Relax and Rejoice. We are a seasonal book club that meets from October thru March.

Our mssion is to become a highly visible book club that promotes literacy, and build solid relationships by networking with book clubs and other literary organizations.

Readers that stop by to visit our site are kept up to date with our reading list, group activities, book reviews and Author spotlights. Open House for new members in the Dallas/Fort Worth area is held in September. Those outside of the DFW area, can join our Yahoo Groups which features monthly contests, motivational messages and literary news.

Literary Hallmarks:
Their Eyes Were Watching God
I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings
Waiting To Exhale
Invisible Life
Laura Ingalls Collection: Little House On the Prairie, Little House In The Big Woods, etc.

Our Divas Read 2 Book Club was organized in 2002 and we presently have 13 members. In the months that we don’t meet, we focus on our youth book club: Little Divas Read 2 for girls between the ages of 13-17. We sponsor a “Get Caught Reading” event in the month of May for elementary students, where we encouraged the students to bring in their favorite book or poem and read to us and invite a children’s Author to read to them.

The past 2 years we have hosted an event at a local restaurant entitled ” Dinner With The Divas” featuring a local Author. The past 2 Authors that have been featured were Eric Pete and Victor McGlothin. We hope this event becomes bigger and better each year.
