BOOK CLUB

Book of the Month

In order to strengthen the Black Lives Matter movement and help towards the fight of eradicating systemic racism across the globe, we’ve started this Book Club to create an active community where we can all learn together. Every month we'll choose a book that amplifies the voices of black writers in order to educate ourselves and challenge our own way of thinking. At the end of the month we'll come together and discuss our experiences, what we’ve learned, enjoyed and how we can again help to further the movement.

 

To enter simply purchase the book of the month. You can find some more ethical places to purchase hereDiane will host the monthly discussion and to enter we ask you to donate anything from £5 upwards to The Black Curriculum, a charity which strives to teach black history to young people in schools across the UK. If you can’t afford the book or a donation to enter, then drop us an e-mail and we'll do our best to help you out.

Book of the Month

Caught between the Jamaican British family who don’t seem to understand her, a job that’s not all it promised and a man she just can’t get over, Queenie’s life seems to be steadily spiralling out of control. Desperately trying to navigate her way through a hot mess of shifting cultures and toxic relationships and emerge with a shred of dignity, her missteps and misadventures will provoke howls of laughter and tears of pity – frequently on the same page.
