We held our first meeting on September 21, 2000. Since that time, we have read 151 books and have had over 30 different members. Currently, we have 12 members who are all dedicated readers and six of whom are part of the original 9 members.
Ebony Pages Bookclub also aspires to make a difference in our community. Part of that focus is to increase literacy. In the past 15 years, we have donated books to 14 different schools and hosted two Literary Salons with a total of 10 authors in attendance. As part of our community focus, we have supported area families for Christmas and supported the Central Children's Home for several years.
We also like to have fun at our meetings. We have hosted 15 bookclub meetings with the authors themselves in attendance. Not to mention attending numerous literary events and author signings for authors such as E. Lynn Harris, Eric Jerome Dickey and Michele Andrea Bowen. We even attended the book launch for "Defining Moments" by our very special author friend, Jacquelin Thomas. Our annual Mission Meeting is another special meeting. We invite friends outside of our bookclub to discuss our book selection and ask that they bring an item to support our cause. We have supported the Haiti earthquake victims, the Women's Prison, Housing for New Hope and the Disciplies of Christ Christian Women's Fellowship's "I See You" project by collecting gently used eyeglasses to be donated.
