stephen curry Book Club Selections

I did the research so you won't have to!

Stephen Curry (Steph - a NBA basketball star on Golden State Warriors) seems an unlikely celebrity to have a book club, but I'm here for it. Started in October 2020, selections are via Literati website. From the site he says: Named Underrated, each month Steph selects stories that highlight diverse protagonists and social justice issues to inspire his readers to push boundaries. He seeks to highlight underrepresented authors—women, people of color, and other overlooked voices—whose stories bring fresh perspectives and hope to every reader. As usual, if I've read the book, the title will be in BOLD; if I've reviewed it, the title will be BLUE.
