Three-time Emmy Award-winner Sunny Hostin has been a co-host of ABC’s morning show The View since 2016. Her debut book, I Am These Truths: A Memoir of Identity, Justice, and Living Between Worlds, features an introspective, intimate look into about growing up Afro-Latina, discovering her identity and her ongoing fight for justice. Last winter, Hostin hosted and executive produced a six-episode Investigation Discovery documentary series, Truth About Murder with Sunny Hostin, exploring the stories behind some of the nation’s most notorious homicides. In May 2021, she will release her first novel, Summer on the Bluffs, chronicling the escapes of three god sisters in Oak Bluffs, the most exclusive Black beach community in the country.

Joy-Ann Reid is a political analyst at MSNBC and host of "The ReidOut." She is the author of three books: Fracture: Barack Obama, the Clintons and the Racial Divide, We Are the Change We Seek: The Speeches of Barack Obama, which she co-edited with Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne, and her latest book: The Man Who Sold America: Trump and the Unraveling of the American Story -- published in the summer of 2019, which spent four weeks on the New York Times best-sellers list. Reid also co-hosts a podcast: Reid This-Reid That with veteran TV journalist Jacque Reid.

So enjoyed the Booklovers ‘ Breakfast with Joy Reid and Sunny Hostin it was by far the best one yet and I been to quite a few great ones. Two phenomenal authors and speakers. Didn’t miss a thing by it being virtual and I think I was able to hear more without the distractions of seeing others and food all around us though I still like in person. But all in all I’m so thrilled to have been a participant in this
