Alysia Allen is the founder of Mocha Girls Read, a Meetup book club that began with 12 women in Inglewood, California, and now has more than 10,000 members across the United States in 14 cities and two virtual communities. 11 years ago, Alysia was an introverted bookworm who never quite saw herself as a leader. Now she sits down with David as an award-winning organizer to share her own personal transformation and the “secret sauce” that makes her book club so successful. They discuss the finer details, like membership expansion through social media photos, as well as how reading stretches your independence and empathy muscles.
