Donovan, the Casanova of the crew, is street smart, handsome, and in demand by almost every woman he encounters. Can he be tamed or is he destined to remain savage? Roe takes his enforcer position to another level. Hailed as your favorite killer’s favorite killer, he makes even the hardest thugs think twice before trying him. In a society where loyalty to the streets and expecting the same in return is merely a hustler’s dream, Tavares discovers that only God can truly shelter him from the pain.

“It was refreshing to be able to discuss literature with avid readers who displayed a genuine interest in getting to know me. I found the group to be comprised of brilliant and beautiful women from various backgrounds that were not only passionate about literature, but also giving back to the community” commented author Richard “Reason” Garrett.

The Women of Color Book Club was founded by Robin Oliver in 2002. As part of the club’s dedication to literacy all members regularly donate literature to the public library as well as supports various scholarship programs and back to school bashes. The group has evolved from just a book club into a close knit family that celebrates, encourages, and empowers women to pursue their dreams.
