Welcome to Tuma's Books!

Tuma's Books is a carefully curated online bookstore of titles by authors from diverse backgrounds, as well as a monthly book club introducing you to new titles you might not discover on your own. Plus, you can get personalized diverse book recommendations from an avid reader and educator who cares about the impact you have on others.

When it comes to books, I know that there are so many options out there, but we also know that it can be hard to find a story that's going to validate your identity or help you understand someone else's experience. That's where Tuma's Books comes in: a trusted source for finding books that are as inclusive as possible—and if something isn't quite right about the content? I'll let you know (and offer better options).

I'm here because I believe that books can change lives—and reading diverse stories is a key way to creating a more equal society. Thanks for joining me in this work!
