BookTini is...

...a national social organization that brings women together each month to discuss good books over delicious cocktails.

Founded in Oakland, CA on October 25, 2009, BookTini Book Club has since expanded to 11 chapters in California, New York, D.C., Minnesota, Tennessee, and Virginia. Each month, more than 100 active BookTini members meet with their chapters for Drinks & Discussion.

Drinks & Discussion is simply ladies discussing a literary selection over a signature drink that pairs well with the book or with the season. We focus on Black literary works, but we also select books by writers of all cultures and ethnic groups, and read a wide range of genres. We participate in literary themed events throughout the year and give back to our communities through charitable contributions and annual service projects that promote literacy.

february is "black excellence" Month!

Our Black Excellence themed selection is any memoir, biography or social commentary honoring a Black public figure or the Black community.
