Well-Read Black Girl with Glory Edim

Arts #181Books #63

Writer and founder of the Well-Read Black Girl book club Glory Edim is a book lover who brings readers and writers together to celebrate the written word. Expanding on the community she built in 2015, Well-Read Black Girl is the literary kickback you never knew you needed. Each week, Glory sits in deep, honest and close conversation with authors like Tarana Burke, Min Jin Lee, Anita Hill, Gabrielle Union, Elizabeth Acevedo and more. You’ll also meet WRBG Book Club members, literacy advocates, and Black booksellers to hear what they’re reading and what it means to be well-read. Join Glory through this current cultural moment – where art, justice and literature collide – and pay homage to the literary legacies of the women who paved the way. You’ll laugh, cry, connect and build space for kinship in a shared love of literature. Tune in, turn the page, and join the celebration.

    Generous and beautiful
    The advice that Tayari Jones said that her writing mentor Pearl Cleage had given her is the best advice I’ve ever heard to encourage someone to become a writer. It’s so generous and beautiful. Thank you for your show and thank you for that interview.

    Didn’t want the interview to end!
    Just listened to the interview of Gabriel Union, and just as she said that it took her six months to read “The prophets” because she didn’t want the book to end, I didn’t want this interview to end. Thank you!!!

    Great interviewer
    This book reviewer has great guests and elicits very interesting background info from the writers. So glad I found her podcast.

    Yas Glory!
    I love this podcast! I’ve had the pleasure to see Glory a few times in person (pre-pandemic) and she is always a joy to watch interact with other authors. Her podcast is an extension of that work. I also love the rapid fire questions feels like the listener is getting personal with the authors. I love to listen to this podcast during my evening walk after work. Keep the content coming!

    This podcast is an invitation to explore the power of books. As a young black girl, I was constantly reading and as I got older, and busier, I read less. I’ve been working on reclaiming reading from the utilitarian space I put it in.This podcast has been important in that journey. I’m happy this podcast exists and look forward to the episodes to come.

    Warm, thoughtful conversations
    This is an inviting space for listeners to hear from influential authors and public figures, but in a way that’s welcoming. Well made show.

    Low quality reading list…
    Reading these books won’t make you a well read black girl. Actually the books one should read to become a well read black girl are the same books one should read to become a well read white girl, or Asian man etc.. Ethno-narcissism doesn’t make a person smart, in fact it does quite the opposite.

    Just what the doctor ordered!
    Love that you are bringing WRBG conversations about books and authors to those of us who can’t get to the festivals (#goals). At the same time it feels like an intimate conversation that you invite each of us to join!
