Zambo Aroma has partnered with the Literary Freedom Project to host a book club! The Literary Freedom Project presents One Book One Bronx. LFP is committed to creating spaces that help leverage the power of books, culture, and education. Our programs value the variety of histories and cultures in the Bronx and give residents places to build community and explore social engagement.
Each week, One Book One Bronx hosts restorative conversations related to gentrification, social justice, women’s empowerment, criminal justice, and racial inequality. The program reflects the borough's racial, economic, and gender demographics and builds bridges to engagement while (re)sparking a love of literature.
This event is free and open to the public. Free books will also be available.
Yaa Gyasi's stunning follow-up to her acclaimed national bestseller Homegoing is a powerful, raw, intimate, deeply layered novel about a Ghanaian family in Alabama.
Transcendent Kingdom is a deeply moving portrait of a family of Ghanaian immigrants ravaged by depression and addiction and grief—a novel about faith, science, religion, and love. Exquisitely written and emotionally searing, this is an exceptionally powerful follow-up to Gyasi's phenomenal debut.
