I was looking over the groups and I ran across your group on credit. I know that I am a guy but it is a subject that I am well versed in and love to talk with others about it. I wanted to request to join your group before I attempted to sign up. I promise I will play nice :-).
Urban Christian Books relesed my latest book, The Legacies on July 29, 2008. I am so excited about the project. The book is getting great reviews, check out my website www.MichelleLarks.com and see for yourself.
The Legacies is available at all major bookstores, Wal-Mart, Target, Amazon.com and will be available on BlackExpression.com on August 5th.
Now is your chance to help decide which two titles will be picked as The Gilded Pen Book Club's reads for July and win a copy of either DUCHESS BY NIGHT by Eloisa James or AFTER THE KISS by Suzanne Enoch!
Just check out the post on our club page to enter!
Hello dear member of the Black Feminist/Womanist Literature group! It's J., the admin., and I'm writing to inform you of the group's new look! (And it goes beyond the change in our group picture, though it is nice, don't you agree?) :) What we're discussing now: Patricia Hill Collins' Black Feminist Thought, Toni Morrison's Sula for our July read, our little BIG Read: 7 short stories in 7 days to begin later this month, the National Black Arts Festival where Alice Walker and Pearl Cleage are featured speakers, and more!
We'll soon have a group blog up and running, will begin profiling the uberly dynamic authors within our own group, discussing women's/girls action coalitions in your city, reviving some of our good ol' threads, etc.
I challenge everyone to invite at least one friend (already a member of shelfari or otherwise) to join the Black Feminist/Womanist Literature group and to log in at least bi-weekly. (Though weekly would be wonderful!) And I pledge to do the same.
And did you know that Toni Morrison's new novel, A Mercy, is due to be released in November? Ah, you would if you'd visited our group page! (No, actually, I haven't posted this information. lol) But do stop by and fall into the purple haze that is extraordinary literature by feminists of color!
Tomorrow I start a 14 part series on homosexuality. The article covers everything from same sex marriage to scientific research regarding the issue. I thought it might be of interest as a news or educational piece. Please drop past andread my blog at http://www.myspace.com/thewritething .
Hi there Shalena,
I have just joined this website. And when i was going through the groups, i got more interested in your group because i am young lady seeking to be financially independent. I love your discussions.
However, i have noticed that the group is private. How do i get to join the group? Do i need some qualification to join it? I am interested to know.
I hope to get your response soon.
Thank you and stay blessed!
