Join our new Book Club on Black History

10 October 2018

An Article Image

Student Services, Information Services and Kent Union are pleased to launch the first of our Book Clubs, for students and staff who want to feed their literary curiosity and discover new books and resources outside of their academic studies.

This Book Club, launched during Black History Month, features over 30 titles, classic and modern, fiction and non-fiction, from all over the world which explore what it means to be Black both historically and in the world today.

See the books!

Some of these titles are available to borrow from the Templeman or the Drill Hall libraries, or to purchase from Blackwell's book shop on the Canterbury campus, whilst others you will need to source yourself.

We hope you enjoy them. Challenge yourself – how many can you read in October?

Share your reading comments and pictures on social media with #KentBHM2018 #unikentbookclub

Book clubs

The Book Clubs will feature suggested reading lists, some of which are specifically designed to recognise and acknowledge special awareness months, weeks or days, and will hopefully open new literary worlds for you to discover. Look out for further Book Clubs coming soon!

Get involved!
