Featured Trader of the Month – BOOKLOVE
After 15 years of working in the media, and with no publishing experience, Booklove founder, Samantha was frustrated by the lack of diversity and cultural representation in TV and in books. This motivated her to create Book Love – The Travelling Multicultural Book Carnival, which travels the country to schools, markets, and festivals. The award-winning Book Carnival, now into its fifth year, represents the beautifully diverse and bilingual communities around us, and sources some of the best multicultural, inclusive, and anti-racist adult and children’s books from across the world.
Samantha is passionate about representing a range of cultures, with an emphasis on marginalised Black and Brown voices in adult and children’s literature. In her own words: There is massive under-representation, not just within the curriculum, but across all media, especially within books, and BookLove is on a mission to change that. With 20p from every book sold going to our Community Interest Company, “BookLove + Beyond”, we are donating free books to schools to make real change.
Those who don’t see themselves will find themselves at BookLove
Booklove will be @ VILLAGE GREEN
