Black Lit Book Club

The Black Lit Book Club explores the works of Black authors from Africa and across the diaspora. Black Lit Book Club is hosted by Isis of Sistah Scifi. Sistah Scifi is a cauldron of all things afro-futurism; Black mysticism, science fiction noir, and traditional voodoo; casting spells to uplift literature written by Black women. You can support Isis and Sistah Scifi by purchasing her incredible literary merch here.

Follow the discussion online by joining the Seattle Black Lit Book Club Facebook Group.

The Black Lit Book Club meets on the second Sunday of every month at Third Place Books Seward Park (5041 Wilson Ave S). The bookstore is on a street-level floor with wide aisles and no stairs to the meeting area or to the wheelchair accessible restroom. There are two accessible parking spaces available near the front entrance (permit required).
