About Go On Girl

Go On Girl Go On Girl About Go On Girl! Book Club The Go On Girl! Book Club is a nationally recognized, not-for-profit organization that supports authors of the Black African Diaspora by choosing one book per month for all club members to read. The Club reading list is formed twice a year. Members read a book each month, meet to discuss it, and then write the author of the book to express their opinions about the work. The organization as a whole recognizes the artistic achievements of these authors at annual award ceremonies. Since our founding in 1991, more than 30 chapters have been organized across the country. Each chapter is limited to 12 members to keep the regular, monthly meetings intimate and manageable. Our members range in age from twentysomething to sixtyplus and they have varied professional backgrounds and personal interests. Learn more about the Go On Girl!
