Hartford Reads in Color


Hartford Reads in Color, a book club led by Hartford's L.I.T. (Literary Integrated Trailblazers), is committed to delving into the narratives and rich diverse voices of communities of color. From the intellectually astute, to the uncouth and wretched, we are reading with no limits. Focused on shedding light in literature across the diaspora while also educating the community of the various authors and stories the sound and look like them.
