Bad On Paper

Mar 30, 2022

It’s time to talk about our March book club pick: Black Cake by Charmaine Wilkerson. We absolutely LOVED this book. We discuss what grabbed us about this book, the themes of not understanding your parents as individuals vs. parents and identity, all the food in this book (including black cake!), our feelings on the ending, and more!     We also say our podcast goodbyes to Grace! (IRL, we’re planning our Charleston reunion as we speak)
