What is it?

The Queer Black Book Club is a reading group held on the fourth Thursday of every month [6:30 pm] for people who are both are both LGBTQ+ and from Global Majority communities [African, Caribbean, Southeast, South, East Asian, Middle Eastern Diaspora communities, as well as Indigenous communities]. We are currently meeting on Zoom.

The group is facilitated by Cheryl Martin (cheryl@cultureword.org.uk). The aim of the Queer Black Book Club is to read 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. Hope to see you there!

How it works

Purchase a copy of this month’s book or borrow it from your local library. Read the book and come to the club ready to discuss your thoughts on what you’ve read. Even if you didn’t have time to finish it, or read it long ago, come along, you’re always welcome.

How to join

Email Cheryl at cheryl@cultureword.org.uk or visit our Facebook page and request membership. Either way, there’s a short questionnaire to fill out, to help keep our members safe, and then come along to the next club session.

Every month a member of Commonword’s Queer Black Book Club will review one of the novels that the group has read together. Click the banner to read this month’s!
