    Donna Johnson: Founder, This Browne Girl Reads

    Donna Johnson: Founder, This Browne Girl Reads

    Donna Johnson is an avid reader, and has been known to be so since the age of two. According to family folklore, she was born with a book in her hand. She doesn’t recall a time not being surrounded by, or, reading books. Books have been her joy, her peace and her escape. She finds it fitting that she would be involved in every aspect in which literature can be shared and celebrated.
    Such a moment happened in 2017 when she stumbled upon the #bookstagram community on Instagram, a corner in the virtual universe where she could share her love for reading with others who also enjoyed the written words of a book. This was the birth of This Browne Girl Reads.  Two years later after enduring many of life’s unpleasantness, she needed an escape and wanted to have conversations and more dialogue. Though nervous and unsure, she launched the This Browne Girl Reads Facebook private group and the Public Kulture Page. These three wonderful communities are her pride and joy. She’s thankful for every member of each.  She loves the engagement and the connections formed. This Browne Girl Reads focuses on black literature but it includes members of any gender, non-binary, and any race.
    She has visions of contributing more to the literary community but will do so in baby steps.
