The Black Queer book club is a new reading group held on the last Thursday of every month (6.30-8.30pm) for people who are both BAME/POC/Black and LGBT/Queer.

The group is facilitated by Cheryl Martin, Kirit Patel and Candice Buchanan.

“The aim of the Black Queer book club is to discuss literature that relates to our identities, meet new people and come together in a space that is designed just for us. It will be fun, relaxed and informative and members will be encouraged to express their thoughts on literature and life. 

Each month’s book will be announced on on our social media (@cultureword on twitter and https://www.facebook.com/culturewordcommonword/). Alternatively you can email charlotte@cultureword.org.uk.”

Upcoming book club dates and books are as follows: 

Thursday 25th July: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

Thursday 29th August: Rubyfruit Jungle

Thursday 26th September: book tbc
