This month we’ll be reading Lovecraft Country by author Matt Ruff, a dark fantasy horror novel exploring the conjunction between the horror fiction of H.P. Lovecraft & racism in the United States during Jim Crow.
We’re pairing it with medium bodied reds from California wineries owned exclusively by black women in our industry. These wines are frightfully good, you might want to order a couple!
$: McBride Sisters Collection Black Girl Magic Red Blend
$$: Theopolis Vineyards 2015 Estate Grown Petite Sirah
$$$: Darjean Jones 2015 Cabernet Franc Stagecoach Vineyard
Free to join and open to all!
