Authors' lived experiences matter to us as much as those of the characters they’ve created. With DVF Book Club, we want to provide an extra layer of impact by highlighting the author’s perspective alongside their story. Since our brand is built on the amplification of female voices, we decided to curate our book selection with female-identifying authors. At the start of each month, we’ll choose our Book of the Month (and add some Staff Picks for extra credit) and host a virtual or in-person event with the author once we finish. To join, all you need is a love of books! We’re excited to read with you.

“Books are a portal for us to identify and empathize with diverse realities. Maybe we will end up reading a book you might have never picked up and you'll end up loving it. Maybe we will read a book that’s been on your list for a while. Maybe we’ll read your favorite and you’ll discover something new. Maybe it will be an opportunity to have a meaningful heart-to-heart with other women. We are creating this space for us and I’m looking forward to having some inspiring conversations!”
