Mocha Girls Book Group
 

We are a group of black women who love to read, want to read more and meet like-minded women. We are here to inspire women to read, share literature, fellowship, and encourage others in the joy of reading.
In answer to a frequently asked question: "Do I have to be Black to be a member?"
Nope. All are welcome, but we want to and will keep our focus on the uplifting of Black women.
