WHO we are
Ìyá ni wúrà is of Yoruba descent and meaning “Mother is as precious as gold”.
Welcome! A moment to yourself at last. Iya ni Wura 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”.
Iya ni Wura offers 4 different subscription boxes. We have two sizes to meet your budget and your needs: Ìyá Kekere (Little Mama) and Ìyá NIá (Big Mama).
