The #SmartBrownGirl Book Club is focused on widening the access our community has to knowledge through reading. That means we are not just a book club that announces a month read and leaves you to it! Along with our weekly discussions, we offer a syllabi for every reading. All syllabi is available for purchase or included in your Insider Membership.
The syllabi is a reading guide that will facilitate understanding amongst varying levels of readers to give the opportunity to anyone with different levels of knowledge has the same equity in accessing the ideas and significance of the book. This is especially important for our Complex Theory readings.
All syllabi is written and reviewed by a cohort of #SmartBrownGirls who have research degrees across various industries. Your purchase of the syllabi and/or Insider Membership help ensure everyone in the process of making this book club possible are paid for their work ✨
Once your purchase is processed, it will be available for download as a PDF from your account*.

Everything you need to know to know about SBG Book Club.
How do I sign up for the book club
There are three steps:
- Select a membership.
- Signup and make sure the checkbox to subscribe to the newsletter is selected.
- Join the Facebook Group and/or subscribe to our YouTube Channel.
I don’t have a Facebook page. Can I still join the SBG Book Club?
You absolutely can! You’ll just be getting all our updates via our newsletter and website! We announce all updates via the newsletter, make all live chats available on our YouTube channel and you can keep track of upcoming events via our Events Calendar.
What is the difference between Complex Theory and General readings?
We have two tracks of reading. There will be one general reading per month. And one complex theory reading every 6-8 weeks depending on the book. You can join either or/both readings with either membership option. General readings are lighter books that can be read within a month. Complex theory readings are books that explore various silos of theory and help to open up philosophical thought. They lean more towards academic readings and we highly suggest to purchase our Syllabi to assist in your reading process.
