Online Book Club: Here for It by R. Eric Thomas

here for It, or How to Save Your Soul in America by R. Eric Thomas

This month’s online book pick is Here for It, or How to Save Your Soul in America by R. Eric Thomas. Here for It is a national bestselling memoir in essays that is both hilarious and heartfelt. Lin-Manuel Miranda calls it “Sedaris-level laugh-out-loud funny,” which we consider the highest of compliments!

We picked this book in celebration of Pride Month. Although Thomas’ essays focus on his own experiences of fitting in as a gay black man, his writing speaks to all of us in times  we’ve felt like we didn’t quite fit in, or struggled to accept ourselves as we are.
