Diverse BIPOC Stories Curated Just for You!

At Tuma's Books, we carefully curate books that authentically honor the identities, heritage, and lived experiences of people who are not typically represented in literature. There's so much to learn about ourselves and others by reading diverse books.

That's why I'm here to offer readers of all ages powerful stories about and written by author who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.

Representation Matters; let's read diversely!
