Noname's Book Club is an "online/irl community dedicated to uplifting POC voices." DC Public Library is excited to help you find some of the monthly selections for free. 

The book club, founded by Chicago rapper Noname, highlights two books each month written by authors of color. In addition to online discussions, in-person meet ups to discuss the monthly picks are held once per month in D.C., as well as other cities across the country. 

Check out some of the Noname picks with your library card.
