Events - Books, books, books
Some of our literature related events for Black History Month:
Take the Black Writers Challenge
- find inspiration for future reading with Decolonise Your Bookshelves in 50 Books, join Brixton Radical Readers to discuss anti-imperialist African leader Thomas Sankara. Or read Surge, a poetry collection about the New Cross Fire, with Lambeth LGBTQ+ book group.
- Meet unique writers Abi Dare, whose The Girl with the Louding Voice is one of the most loved books of the year, and Bernardine Evaristo – the autobiography of the first Black woman Booker prizewinner is also a “never give up” rallying cry.
- Trinidadian creole (Kriol) language in Pleasantview, Celeste Mohammed’s look at Caribbean culture – already acclaimed in international fiction.
