Yesterday, I had the chance to go to an event at Manchester Waterstones all about the BAME anthology, A Change is Gonna Come. If you follow our blog here or over on Twitter you will have most likely seen that we read this for our read-along two weeks ago (if not, how on earth have you missed it?) Five of the twelve authors were speaking at the event, four of which are new voices and their story in this anthology is their first published work! This made for such interesting conversations and also made it feel more relatable in many ways. The authors on the panel were Tanya Byrne, Yasmin Rahman, Phoebe Roy, Mary Bello and Aisha Bushby! Also, a big thanks to Charlie from Stripes Publishing who led the questions and was also really lovely to meet!
For the past 12 days we have been doing a read-along of the BAME anthology, A Change is Gonna Come. It’s a wonderful book filled with short stories and poems by diverse authors, some well known, others slightly less known – all of which are amazing to now know of! As by now we have read the whole book, we are going to do a joint review of the book! Continue reading
It’s day 9 of our read-along which means we only have four left including today’s! In case you’ve somehow missed it on our blog and twitter (where have you been?) we are doing a read-along blog tour of the BAME anthology, A Change is Gonna Come. Im absolutely loving the book so far – I’ve found something in each and every story or poem that I love, and that’s such a wonderful feeling. Continue reading
It’s day 4 of our read-along blog tour! If you didn’t know, me and Sophie are hosting a read-along of A Change Is Gonna Come, a BAME anthology all about change. We’ve both been waiting to read this collection for a long time, and reading a story a day means we get to discuss everything together. Which is GREAT!
We’ve held quite a few read-along’s on this blog so far, Christmas, Halloween and ones just for fun. They’re an excuse for me and Sophie to read something together more than anything and get chance to talk about a book when we’re on exactly the same page. Especially with our last few, more and more people have joined in, and we have another one for you right now.
