Book Club members will receive the title ahead of its commercial release and will also be invited to an exclusive chat with the author and the founders of McBride Sisters Collection, Robin McBride and Andréa McBride John, in April to discuss their thoughts on the novel.

The Final Revival of Opal & Nev is a fictional oral history about a rock duo – unapologetically Black, avant-garde singer Opal and quirky British songwriter Nev – who shot to fame in 1970s New York, and the secret that lies at the peak of their stardom. The book has been hailed as “utterly fresh” by and “as musical and revolutionary in tone and structure as it is in content” by New York Times bestselling author Jason Reynolds.  

For $89, participants in the inaugural Black Girl Magic Wine & Book Club will receive:

  • One bottle of McBride Sisters Collection Black Girl Magic Rieslin
  • One bottle of McBride Sisters Collection Black Girl Magic Merlot
  • An advance hardcover first edition of The Final Revival of Opal & Nev
  • Complimentary ground shipping
