We are a community dedicated to underrepresented authors and the readers who love them.

What We're Reading

Our next Phenomenal Book Club Pick is…




Ingrid Yang is a 29-year-old PhD student who’s finally on the cusp of graduating – that is, if she can finish her dissertation on the late poet Xiao-Wen Chou. She struggles everyday in the Chou archives, looking for new insights into the writer to no avail, when a curious note pops up in the research and offers her a chance at academic redemption. But when further investigation into the note leads to a devastating discovery, Ingrid’s academic and personal lives are upended in ways she never could have imagined.
