In line with the mission, Belonging Books' book social is designed as an intentional gathering space for women of color and gender diverse people of color with some similar shared experiences — with the hope and goal to provide a safe space of support, expression and joy for people who may not feel like they have that space here on the Cape. It is meant to be a small sanctuary, a resting place, for people of color who can tire of assimilating, code-switching or constantly trying to keep people comfortable. In this space, whiteness is de-centered and the views and voices of people of color are prioritized.
On Sunday, December 10 at 3:30 pm., we will meet to discuss Never Whistle at Night: An Indigenous Dark Fiction Anthology edited by Shane Hawk and Theodore C. Van Alst Jr. Place TBD.
If you are interested in joining this one or future book socials, please contact me.
