Readers of Colour – Edinburgh

31st January , 6:45pm to 7:45pm


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!

We share our laughter and ideas over discussions about things like that month’s reading and community care.

We meet every other month in Edinburgh, Glasgow and online. Book this event to join the Edinburgh session on Wednesday 31st January, 6.45pm – 7.45pm. There will be some sweet snacks.

Novel – Love – History

A deliciously gritty and strikingly bold debut novel about discovering love where it has always been.Elsie is a sexy, funny, and fiercely independent woman living in South London. But, at just 28, she is also tired. Though she spends her days writing tender poetry in her journal, her nights are spent working long hours for minimum wage at a neighbourhood gay bar.

The difficulty of being estranged from her family, struggle of being continually rejected from jobs, and fear of never making money doing what she loves, is too great. But Elsie is determined to keep the faith, for a little longer at least. Things will surely turn around. They have to.

As she tries to breathe through the panic attacks, sleeping with her hot and spirited co-worker Bea isn’t exactly straightforward and offers Elsie just another place to hide.

As Elsie tries to reconnect with her best friend Juliet, her fragile world spirals out of control. Can Elsie steady herself and not fall through the cracks?

“Wonderfully fresh, zesty and sexy”
BERNARDINE EVARISTO author of Girl, Woman, Other

In our Readers of Colour session, we’ll be looking closely at a couple of chapters: 14 and 16. Chapter 14 explores sex, intimacy and creativity. Chapter 16, we’ll see the power and healing of queer inter-generational friendship.
