Welcome to Readers of Colour. Readers of Colour is a thriving community of women and non-binary readers of colour who come together to read writing by women and non-binary writers of colour!
Readers of Colour, Wednesdays 17th February, 24th March, 28th April and 26th May, 6pm to 7.30pm, Online, Women of Colour only, 16+
We share our laughter and ideas over discussions about the month’s reading or ‘watching’ or ‘listening’ – as we sometimes watch short films or listen to podcasts or music, and occasionally have guest speakers. Rather than reading whole books together, to keep commitment and cost down, we tend to read/ watch/ listen to a small focused piece or selection of pieces each month. You can read more about us and what we’ve discussed in the past at the Readers of Colour page.
If you’re interested in joining the group but you’re not sure what to expect – just come along to a session and listen in, there’s no need to talk or take part in the discussion unless you’d like to! We meet on a Wednesday evening every month via Zoom, with the group facilitated by Nadine Aisha Jassat.
Read more about what we are up to on our blog page here, including book recommendations by group members.

This event takes place online. For more information and to book, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. This event is for women* of colour and non-binary people of colour (16+).
*All women-only events are inclusive of Trans and Intersex women, as well as non-binary and gender fluid people who are comfortable in a space that centres the experience of women.
This session takes place via an online video call link. If you would like to attend, please book and we will share an email invitation along with simple and straight forward instructions on how this will work. If you have any concerns about how this will work for you, please do get in touch and we’ll do all we can to support you in joining the session.
An automated live transcript using Otter.ai is available during this event. We also have a small amount of funding available to provide live captioning through Stagetext for some of our Spring events. Stagetext captioning is provided in-person and is therefore more accurate. Please get in touch with Emily on email@example.com at least 3 weeks before the event if this would be helpful to you and we’ll work to arrange this. See here for upcoming events where live captioning with Stagetext is arranged.
