We love reading books about the black experience, books by black authors, books about and from all over the black world. We want to share our love with others. Our ambition is to create a community of black book lovers, celebrate the diversity and excellence of black literature and get people talking about the books and authors that have inspired them.
To this end we’re holding a book swap event on Saturday 3 March 2012.
Come and join us!
Bring books that that you have enjoyed and would like to donate then swap them for others that are likely to inspire you too. Come along even if you don’t have a book to share – you’ll be able to buy any book for a £1.
As well as the book swap are also planning a programme of book related activities. There will be the chance to hear Alex Wheatle, Colin Grant, Sonja Lewis, Dreda Say Mitchell and Bim Adewunmi speak about books they enjoy.
The book swap is open to all, and is organised by London based book lovers. This literary affair will be our special way of making World Book Night begin a little bit earlier.
