We are excited to be piloting a new reading group in Edinburgh for women of colour, to come together and discuss literature by women writers of colour.

Readers of Colour, Wednesdays 30th January, 27th February, 27th March, 24th April, 29th May, 6pm to 7pm, Lighthouse Bookshop, Edinburgh, 16+, Women only


We meet at Lighthouse Books on the last Wednesday of every month to discuss poetry, fiction, graphic novels, essays and narrative non-fiction by women writers of colour, with work by Scotland’s own makar Jackie Kay as well as writers from around the world including Fatimah Asghar.

Attendance is free, and the reading group is a great opportunity to meet new people, exchange and share conversations and ideas, and share passion for writing by women of colour.


This workshop is for women only* and is free to attend. To book, email: Nadine.Jassat@womenslibrary.org.uk or you can call us on 0141 550 2267. If you have booked a place and are no longer able to attend please let us know so that we can make your place available to someone else.
