The kick off their literary reading series on Wednesday, November 28, 2018  will feature Faith Adiele, author of The Nordic-Nigerian Girl’s Guide to Lady Problems and other women writers of color. These writers will share their rich experiences of being a woman of color in the changing political and racial landscape of San Francisco.

  • Our Voices, Our Stories is curated by NCBWSF Member, Lisa D. Gray.  The series seeks to provide a space and place for the stories of women of color, so their voices shed light on and build the vibrancy of San Francisco’s black arts community.
  • Every three months, four women authors of color come together to share their work with you, their readers.
  • Two established authors and two emerging authors select their best work and read from it for up to ten minutes each.
  • The highlight of the evening is a book chat with one of the established authors.
  • Authors focus on everything from fiction to travel writing and poetry to memoir. Their stories paint vivid pictures of what it's like to live in the world as a woman of color and explore themes and topics everyone can relate to and understand.
