Independent booksellers nationwide are invited to e-mail WRBG@bookweb.org to sign up to host a Well-Read Black Girl book club; be sure to include your name, store name, city, and state. Stores that have already signed up are featured on an interactive map on IndieBound.org; as stores continue to sign up to host WRBG book clubs, they will be added to this map so customers can find a book club near them.
Bookstores can also visit the designated Well-Read Black Girl page on BookWeb.org to download marketing assets, including a WRBG website stamp, banners, and e-cards, and to join a private Facebook Group.
