MahoganyBooks Front Row: The Podcast

Black Writers: Accessible, Available, Anytime, Anywhere

MahoganyBooks Front Row: The Podcast is a thoughtfully curated series that offers a unique opportunity to listen to Black authors discussing their latest works. Each episode of the podcast features an in-depth conversation with an author, delving into their creative process, inspirations, and the themes explored in their book. The series is a re-cast of the live author talks hosted by MahoganyBooks, a Black-owned bookstore in Washington DC that is dedicated to promoting literature written for, by, or about people of the African Diaspora. With the podcast, listeners can enjoy the same level of engagement and intellectual stimulation as the live events, from the comfort of their own homes.
