BOOK MECCA EVENTS

Live Interviews, Captivating Discussion Forums, Book themed events and Community Initiatives

Our stories are a generational reflection of our history, even if it’s fiction.

Book Mecca events combine literature, black owned business shout outs and plain ole’ fun. Whether we are hosting book themed events in person or virtually or interviewing up and coming authors on their journey and masterpieces; our main objective is to highlight the culture and all the magic we exude. Our words are our history and Book Mecca intends to keep it at the forefront.

One thought on “BOOK MECCA EVENTS

  1. I like the December event because I rarely see black men coming in to my popup bookstore looking for a book. I have book for me to purchase, even for young black men to read and I think I got one family to purchase a book for their young son, titled, Just mercy .
    Interesting
    Thank you
