The bus celebrates Black life, Black heritage ,and Black joy.

First-of-its-kind mobile bookstore Black Worldschoolerswhich launched last year — is already putting Indy on the map.

Oprah’s Book Club featured the bookseller on wheels earlier this week on its Instagram feed for its unique mission of bringing diverse books to kids across central Indiana.

The post reads, “If you happen to see this bookmobile on the streets of Indianapolis, stop and check it out! When Natalie Pipkin, a mom of two, wanted a place for her sons to find diverse books to read, she launched @blackworldschoolers_bookstore on wheels, ‘to provide a safe, welcoming space to uplift Black life, Black heritage and Black joy!’”

You can book the literary bus for your next event or shop its inclusive collection online.
