I've always loved reading. My Grandmother used to give me books to read when she was tasked with looking after me over the holidays. A babysitting strategy has become a passion of mine and I wanted to share it with others, so I created a physical book club based in Calgary, Alberta. Since then, I've expanded the bookclub to include online members from all over the world through an Instagram created shortly after. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's famous TED Talk "The Danger of a Single Story" best captures my experience with literature as an African woman. I recognize the collective and the very personal danger of these single stories. Sue's Stokvel, not only aims to uplift the voices of POC Authors, but to uplift the community of people who will read these books.
