What’s all the hype?

“I am truly loving you guys’ presence in the lit community! ” - Author Love Belvin

“If you know anything about NOLA, the vibe is always electric, fun, & of course naughty… That’s BSB!” - Author Tiye Love

“The storm & calm cool breeze…it means a lot to have you rocking with me!” - Indie Love

Why BSB?

BSB has exceeded 1,000 members on Facebook & Instagram. We asked members to let us know how we are doing! “What do you love about BSB?'“ They gave us everything!

We’re so grateful for the members, support, and love so many have consistently shown to us! Each month we kick off our engagement with recommendations in our monthly BIG Beads and Reads Newsletter. You can always catch our Live Beans and Bourbon Monday Night discussions on our YouTube channel.

Just in time to wrap up another amazing month, BSB has been nominated two years in a row for Best Black Bookclub, by Black Girls Who Write. It is indeed such an honor to be recognized among your peers. This literary community of avid readers and awesome authors is a whole vibe!

You can’t stop a well read woman! We read the books, we drink the drinks. All the smack we talk in our texts will now be brought to you! Bourbon Street Bookers is a nod to the simple things we love in life: Drinking, NOLA, and Reading. We’re just two women that bonded over books and are aiming to connect to like hearted souls.

Readers of diverse genres are welcome to engage readers and authors in a safe, non-judgmental space. The books discussed and read all range from spiritual inspirational to urban fiction.

BSB continues to grow!

Facebook & Instagram have over 1,200 followers! We have over 200 subscribers for our monthly newsletter. We’re connected with over 100 indie and published authors everyday while linking readers with their favorite books, supporting Black Authors, as well as, Black BookClubs, Black Book Stores & Black Book Bloggers!

Who are the faces of Bourbon Street Bookers?

Allegra & Ayanna are the founders of Bourbon Street Bookers. These ladies are childhood friends, who reconnected as adults over their passion for reading. The love of reading was an immediate bond which has taken them on journeys they never knew possible. Their genuine sisterhood, formed a supportive network for authors, aspiring authors, bloggers, podcasters and readers. They aspire to sponsor literacy programs for the youth of New Orleans and local areas, in hopes of contributing to the support in development of reading skills at an early age. Targeting youth will aid in children learning to read, comprehend, and remain motivated, as well as being confident in their reading ability.
