The Edinburgh and The Lothians Branch of the Women's Equality Party invite you to our next 'Book Club'. This will be held on Thursday 25th November 2021 at 19:30 via Zoom. The book that we will be studying is Bolu Babalola's Love in Colour. A vibrant collection of love stories from a debut author, retelling myths, folktales, and histories from around the world.
A high-born Nigerian goddess, who has been beaten down and unappreciated by her gregarious lover, longs to be truly seen.
A young businesswoman attempts a great leap in her company, and an even greater one in her love life.
A powerful Ghanaian spokeswoman is forced to decide whether she should uphold her family’s politics or be true to her heart.
In her debut collection, internationally acclaimed writer Bolu Babalola retells the most beautiful love stories from history and mythology with incredible new detail and vivacity. Focusing on the magical folktales of West Africa, Babalola also reimagines Greek myths, ancient legends from the Middle East, and stories from long-erased places.
With an eye towards decolonizing tropes inherent in our favourite tales of love, Babalola has created captivating stories that traverse across perspectives, continents, and genres.
Love in Colour is a celebration of romance in all its many splendid forms.
You are welcome to join us whether or not you have had time to read the book.
