About our Book Club

Our Book Club, as with our platform is also growing and expanding!!

Initially setting out as a small intimate book club group of 13 in 2018, our book club has tremendously grown and expanded over time. We have however had a cap on membership admission to keep the reading group small and manageable.


Following numerous requests and expressions of interest from readers wishing to join our book club discussions, we have decided to transition from ‘Bookish People’ Book club to Soma Nami Book Club - an invitation to you dear reader to read with us and join in our monthly book discussions.


As a fundamental tenet of our book club, we have an obvious bias for African Literature and literature by African Diaspora and we will continue amplifying these voices in our book selections and events. Our goal is to showcase the diversity of African Literature and the universality of our experiences as Africans mirrored through the books we read; written by Africans and the African Diaspora.
