SASS presents... the Brown Girls' Book Club! Every 6 weeks we'll be announcing a new book by a female South Asian author, and organising a meetup in London to discuss themes of womanhood and beyond that are presented in these books. Alongside this, there will be an online discussion on our social media channels throughout the week of the meetup if you are unable to attend the face-to-face meetings.


Our next book is Island of a Thousand Mirrors by Nayomi Munaweera. Set during the Sri Lankan civil war, the story follows two young women as they navigate the political and emotional unrest that the war brings to their families and their country. Nayomi Munaweera is a Sri Lankan-American author, and this was her first novel that ultimately went on to win her the Commonwealth Regional Prize for Literature in Asia in 2013. We really want to champion lesser known authors in 2019, and this is such a powerful book to start with!


Tickets are free, but you must have a ticket to attend as there is only certain capacity at the venue. The cafe is fully vegan so you can purchase snacks and/or dinner to enjoy with us! Only requirement is that you've read the book beforehand. See you there!


Also make sure you join the Brown Girls' Book Club Facebook group to join in the online discussion too:  https://goo.gl/o7pNf3  />
