The Decolonial Book Swap
Swap books written by and about the lives of people of colour (poc) from around the world: books that explore the topics of race, colonialism, gender, history, and culture, and books of fiction that centre the voices and experiences of poc.
There’ll be storytelling for children, discussions, and plenty of book swapping. Bring a book with you to swap if you can, and write a little note in it for the next reader!
