The Black Writers' Book Club (BWBC) focuses on books written by Black British writers.

Books are a powerful way to discover the world around us and make changes. BWBC promotes literacy, visibility and the joy of reading Black authors. 

 We make our choices thoughtfully and look for ways to deepen our connection to books, writers, and ourselves. 

We meet on the last Wednesday of the month and welcome readers from African, Caribbean and other Black British backgrounds, as well as readers of other ethnicities who are interested in Black British writing.
