Sonoma County Library launches virtual book club featuring BIPOC authors



SONOMA COUNTY, CA  – Join the Sonoma County Library to discuss books by authors who are Black, Indigenous or People of Color. The library’s new Read BIPOC Book Club meets on Zoom on the last Tuesday of every month at 6 p.m. Meetings are scheduled through November and new members are always welcome.

Northwest Santa Rosa Library Branch Manager Lara Mayelian initially had the idea for the book group. Mayelian’s reasoning behind the club is simple. Books by BIPOC authors should be read and celebrated all year long. “Let’s not just say it, let’s mean it – Black History: More Than Just a Month,” Mayelian said.

The March 30 meeting will discuss “Exit West” by Mohsin Hamid. “Exit West” is available as an eBook, eAudiobook, and in print, so check it out in your favorite format today at
