Join Mahogany Books for a unique literary experience at the special texture Book Club on Monday, March 11, 2024, from 7:30 am to 9:00 am at Mahogany Books National Harbor in Oxon Hill, MD. This monthly book club, Texture, delves into the emotional impact of literature, exploring how books make us feel. This month's featured book is "Boys Come First" by Aaron Foley, a humorous and poignant debut novel following the lives of three Black gay millennial men navigating love, friendship, and professional success in Detroit. As advertising copywriter Dominick Gibson faces a life reset after a layoff and breakup, his best friend Troy Clements contends with challenges in love and family. Remy Patton, a real estate agent known as "Mr. Detroit," adds his own layer of complexity to the trio's dynamic. The novel explores the highs and lows of friendship against the backdrop of Detroit's changing landscape. MahoganyBooks encourages readers, whether they've read the book or not, to participate in the conversation, celebrating the Black perspective and experience. The book club meets every second Sunday at MahoganyBooks National Harbor, offering a platform for intentional connections, riveting discussions, and moments of revelation in the rich tapestry of Black, gay, millennial life. All are welcome to engage with the community, sharing their thoughts on the novels that add texture and complexity to their lives. Don't miss the chance to explore the trials and tribulations of friendship in the heart of Detroit with "Boys Come First" at this month's texture Book Club meeting.
