On Bookshop Day (Saturday October 9th) join Book & Kulture in celebrating diversity in books. Meet guest authors who will sign your book purchases.


Bookshop Day is one-day nationwide celebration of all high street bookshops including independent bookshops like Book & Kulture, based at The Grange, Neasden.


The campaign aims to highlight the cultural importance of books and bookshops, and celebrate the people that bring the two together! 


Bookshop Day happens annually in October and will take place on Saturday 9 October 2021. 


Bookshop Day first launched in 2013 and is run by the Booksellers Association to encourage book lovers, like you, to shop at their local bookshop. 


Book & Kulture are collaborating with Black Wall Street London to create a more diverse #bookshopday this year. They’ll be taking over the basement to bring a host of diverse titles to Camden at their shop at 279 Camden High Street, London NW1 7BX from 10am on Saturday until 7pm.


This flagship Afrocentric store, exists to showcase high quality under-represented Black owned businesses. Curated by founder, Natasha Vigille her aim is to provide an accessible and affordable business trading space and provide solutions for the 'Strategic Challenges' experienced by Black African Caribbean entrepreneurs.


As well as exhibiting an amazing array of diverse books; a number of authors will be visiting throughout the day to sign books and meet the public. They include Kandace Chimbiri, author of newly released ‘The Story Of Afro Hair’, Venessa Taylor, author of Baller Boys and Wendy Shearer, author of African and Caribbean Folktales, Myths and Legends & Bedtime Stories: Beautiful Black Tales from the Past.


A limited number of exclusive tote bags designed by Dapo Adeola will also be available to purchase on the day.
