Ìyà ni wúrà

(eyah-nee-wura)

book club

A monthly multi-genre book community and book box subscription service for like-minded Black mothers and individuals who are excited about reading and building a community around their shared passions.

WHO we are

Welcome! A moment to yourself at last. Ìyá ni wúrà is an inclusive book club space for Black mothers and individuals who love to read and want to make more time for reading. A community built for us to read books together, exchange, and even explore books we may not ordinarily pick up ourselves.

We are on a mission to help you find new reads by Black authors, with an emphasis on discovering emergent & diverse voices from Africa, the Caribbean and across the diaspora.

Each month your beautifully packaged themed subscription box will contain exhilarating new reads, 3-5 gifts from independent creatives, a collectible bookmark and access to online book club discussion.

All our boxes come with a one-time subscription bonus gift: a beautiful tote bag for carrying all your new books!

YOUR TIME IS NOW! Join our community today, and we look forward to getting to know you!

Ìyá ni wúrà is of Yoruba descent and means “Mother is as precious as gold”.
