We believe in raising readers.
Our goal is to encourage families to read more by discovering and promoting books that center dynamic families, BIPOC ,and Neurodiverse characters. We subscribe to the literary philosophy that books should serve as windows into other places and cultures, and mirrors-allowing children to see themselves within the pages of a book.
Our bookclub is focused on family reading and resources for improving your child's independent reading. By creating a community of readers, we will inspire and support children in finding themselves and learning about the world around them.
Margeaux Johnson Weston
After searching for a book featuring a Nigerian-American boy, Margeaux was dissatisfied with the limited amount of books featuring characters of color. She had an idea to create the books she and her son wanted to read.
In 2016 she wrote the children’s book, Auntie’s Crown and founded Little Blk Books, LLC, a service dedicated to discovering books by and featuring characters of color and providing literary and educational resources. She went on to write Clothes Inspired by Nature, with Capstone Publishing. Now, a mother of 3 boys, her quest to discover and support diverse books has grown to include developing those voices and making reading a family past-time.
With a strong background in education, culture, and writing, Margeaux has edited several books, written for media such as Ebony, Paste Magazine and more. She is currently an editor at Clavis Publishing. She also provides sensitivity reading and editing services for publishing houses.
Her goal is for Little Blk Books, LLC to become a literary source for educators, parents, and writers.
