Black Writers And Book Clubs (BWABC) Literacy Festival is an annual festival accepting and open to all regardless of gender, race, national origin, religion, age, marital status, or disability. Our mission is to promote literacy by connecting authors primarily with avid readers, book clubs, authors and publishers.  It is held in September during National Literacy Month.

The Bar-Kays Foundation Partners with BWABC Literacy Association to “promote literacy one community at a time.”

Meet, engage and network with authors, book clubs and avid readers from across the nation, purchase books to support literacy, walk the book club ‘purple carpet,’participate in games, win door prizes, attend book club panel discussions, enter essay contests to win a number of prizes and awards!
