Message From The Host

I've always wanted to be someone who fill voids by creating spaces for us by us, but I didn't know how I'd go about it.

Creation often happens when trying to solve problems.

Personally, I have always felt odd being a Black woman who loves reading. Growing up, reading was never the "cool" hobby. I didn't know anyone who also felt immense joy simply by walking around a bookstore or library. I've also struggled to make friends as an adult.

Discovering bookish social media solved both problems for me!

Once I finally decided to indulge my wanderlust, I thought why not combine bookish meetups with travel! 

I hosted my first retreat in Paris May 2023 and I truly couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Paris was a big deal for me because, like many readers, I'm an introvert.

The way we excitedly talked about our favorite reads and eventually everything else, you could hardly tell that we were strangers before this - that's what community is all about.

This time around, I felt called to host a much different experience, centered around mental health, after being inspired by the best-selling novel, Before I Let Go. It encouraged me to intentionally release the pain and heaviness of my grief, instead of burying it.

I curated a safe space where together, we will explore how to take intentional care of ourselves after loss while connecting with other readers in community to uplift and empower each other as we learn to navigate through life’s ebbs and flows.

I've already started to be more proactive about trying new things like taking a beginner pottery class, signing up for a floral arrangement workshop, and started searching for a therapist.

Whatever you discover is your way of coping with your emotions, we are here to support you on your journey of hope and healing.

I hope to see you in Atlanta!
