About the Event

I have found that this pandemic has exacerbated my anxiety issues, as everyone attempts to adjust to living in this the “new normal. If you are like me that meant working from home with the whole family present all the time. One of the things that has helped my mental health is picking up a good book and getting mentally lost in their words.  Reading is one of the few things that lifts me out of myself and eases my apprehensiveness and sense of entrapment during quarantine.

During my time reading, I often found myself wanting to share something that sparked my interest, inspired a deeper reflection or thought, or just didn’t sit well with me. Despite being alone with another avid book reader, discussing topics surrounding our books were limited. I wanted to share my thirst for knowledge and love for interesting books with a black male community that share my passion.   This is what led to the development of Books Between Brothers, sponsored by the Kalamazoo Black Male Alliance (KBMA).  The KBMA believes the more knowledge you have, the better-equipped you are to tackle any challenge you’ll face.

How we look to grow and advance ourselves during our interaction:

  • reduce stress
  • improve brain connectivity
  • gain new and different perspectives on the world
  • get outside our comfort zone
  • learn from each other in an informal environment
  • improve and maintain communication skills
  • Support open-mindedness and creativity
  • improve personal development

During our time we will share some highlights from the reading and our perspectives.  Haven’t read the books we are discussing yet? No worries!  Books Between Brothers is aimed at building interest in publications we have read or might have missed while including topics of discussion uncovered from the book. We hope you’ll consider participating in this opportunity if you are interested in building community, self-improvement and development through reading. Our group is a great way to hold each other accountable to implementing/improving/ developing your reading practice that benefits us all!.
