Noname launches own book club, the aptly named "Noname's Book Club"

Books: we’ve all either read one, or are at the least familiar with the general concept. The challenge with books though, comes in knowing which ones to read. Sure, you can poll your friends on social media or consult the extraneous piece of paper that comes with your Barnes & Noble receipt (speaking from experience.) But, being bombarded with choice upon choice can create even more internal conflict. Sometimes you just need to be told exactly what you’re going to be reading.

Luckily, at the height of summer beach reading season, Chicago rapper Noname has launched Noname’s Book Club.

According to Noname, the book club will seek to “highlight progressive work from writers of Color and writers within the LGBTQ community.” First two titles up on the docket: Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed and Samantha Irby’s We Are Never Meeting in Real Life.

Noname’s latest full-length release was last year’s Room 25 — an album we really liked. She has also put out two new singles — “Song 31” and “Song 32” — in the intervening time since.
