Spring into reading!

A Space on the Shelf

2018 is our year of celebrating women in print.

 

It already proving to be a big year for women with  a whole array of books celebrating the 100 anniversary of the winning of the right for (some) women to vote and the 200 year anniversary  of  the publication of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.  

We have a dedicated book shelf to showcase the wide range of women's writing and we will be promoting events throughout the year. We will also be supporting Feminist Book Fortnight, 17th - 30th June -  watch this space for more details!
