We are excited to partner with Noname's Book Club to keep you up to date in finding all the selections free of charge.

Launched in summer 2019, Chicago rapper Noname's book club features two titles per month. The web site describes the series as "Reading material for the homies" and elaborates, "From cult classics to the words of emergent authors, Noname’s Book Club highlights books that speak on human conditions in critical and original ways."

Chance the Rapper has a long history with public libraries. He credits the YOUmedia program at Chicago Public Library for helping him refine his craft and start his career in the music industry. His very first mixtape #10Day was recorded at the YOUmedia studio.

Noname's Book Club currently has meetups in Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Cincinnati, Washington DC, Philadelphia, and New York City. At the end of the month participants can attend an end-of-month programs where they unpack each book.

The selections for December are: The Wretched of the Earth by Frantz Fanon and Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi.
