About the event

Do you enjoy reading but don't have time to commit to a book club? Torch Literary Arts joins Future Front to present This is Not a Book Club - a gathering for readers to support local independent bookstores in Central Texas, discuss current writing featured on TORCH, and chat about other literary news and events. All lovers of creative writing are welcome. 

For this meet-up, we'll visit Black Pearl Books! There is no required reading (because this is not a book club, LOL), but we include work by TORCH features you can read in advance to chat about as you mingle and meet new people. Check out "swole" by Dana Tenille Weekes. 

Bring money to shop and support the store. We'll also have book giveaways and light refreshments. 

How to Join: Simply email contact @ with the subject "This Is Not A Book Club" and we'll add you to the invite list so you don't miss any future meet-ups. 

Torch Literary Arts is a 501(c)3 nonprofit established to publish and promote creative writing by Black women. We publish contemporary writing by experienced and emerging writers alike. TORCH has featured work by Toi Derricotte, Tayari Jones, Sharon Bridgforth, Crystal Wilkinson, Patricia Smith, Natasha Trethewey, Elizabeth Alexander, and others. Programs include the Wildfire Reading Series, writing workshops, and retreats.
