The Reading group for Muslim Women brings together women interested in books written by Muslim women or with a focus on women’s issue. If you are passionate about books and love to share them with others, or you simply want to get into the habit of reading but find it challenging, then this group is for you!

Online: Reading Group for Muslim Women, Thursday 24th September, 8pm to 9pm, 16+, Women only


We will be reading and discussing the book Girl, Woman, Other by Bernardine Evaristo and discussing it in the wider context of the Black Lives Matter movement. Bernadine Evaristo was joint winner of the Booker Prize 2019 and shortlisted for Women’s Prize for Scotland 2020 and the book follows the lives and struggles of twelve very different characters. Mostly women, black and British, they tell the stories of their families, friends and lovers, across the country and through the years.


The event is free and for women only* (16+). To attend, please email syma.ahmed@womenslibrary.org.uk. If you can’t attend this event but would like to join the Reading Group for Muslim Women, please do get in touch!
