bibisbooks was launched by model Bibi Abdulkadir during lockdown in April 2020. Ever since, it has established itself as a community and book club, dedicated to advocating and amplifying POC voices within literature. Their mission: to nourish and cultivate the ongoing forms of communication grounded within a safe space. At its heart, bibisbooks is committed to serving the culture and history of its community, to connect and inspire.
