Curated Black Lit

Build a Black literature library of your very own. We offer fiction, nonfiction, indie, and YA quarterly book subscriptions. 

What is Call Number?     

Call Number is a library-inspired book subscription box that celebrates contemporary Black literature and authors of the African Diaspora. Curated by a real librarian, this subscription service will help you build your own collection of quality Black literature. Every three months, a box will be delivered to your door that contains a book along with a custom spine label and catalog card for your organizational purposes. You'll also receive a few bookish and library-related items that pertain to that box's book and theme.

Have a Book Club?

If you're looking to read this month's Call Number selection with your book club, this kit is for you AND your club! The Book Club Kit comes with enough items for five members including the next Call Number book, book journal, library packet (catalog card, spine label, label  protector, and logo sticker), swag pack (bookmark, button, sticker, pen, postcard, and book paper clip), and discussion guide.
