About Us

Jubilee Books was founded in Silver Spring, MD in 2020 by Chelsea McLin. She believes in celebrating voices from all walks of life, especially the ones that go unheard. First and foremost, Jubilee centers black voices, but you will find a variety of books by multicultural and queer authors. The hope is that you find yourself in the carefully crafted selections of books or you challenge yourself by exposing yourself to worlds you've never been.

Although a new business, Chelsea is excited by the ways in which Jubilee can make positive contributions in her communities. There's more to reading than the classics we read in school. And there's more to Black and Brown lives than suffering.
