United California African-American Bookclubs - UCAAB
Bringing Northern and Southern California Together Through Reading!
The United California African-American Bookclubs (UCAAB) was founded in 2003 as a way for African-American book clubs in California to network, support, and promote our reading groups and the authors we love to read. Many of us live, work, and meet in the same area but rarely do we get a chance to come together as ONE! UCAAB is our way of officially creating and sustaining a cohesive environment that celebrates each club's individuality, embraces the bonding of diverse men and women who love to read, and supports the literary contributions of authors of African descent.
One of the primary goals of UCAAB is to bring book lovers and authors together on the West Coast. We accomplish this by hosting our annual Fall into Fiction literary event. This is just one of the ways we get the attention of publishers so they will begin to include California on all of their authors' book tours.
