Phenomenal Women

We’ve long been committed to promoting women who write, and as this year sees the anniversary of some of the landmark moments on the path to gender equality it felt like the perfect time to do something really big. In that spirit, we’re extremely proud to present Phenomenal Women, our year-long celebration of great books by great women. Throughout the year each of our shops (and our website too) will host revolving displays made up of women writers from across a range of genres and subject areas. Every month we're also choosing one modern classic to offer at half-price, by way of an introduction to an author's body of work.

So, go on: read a Phenomenal Woman today.

Phenomenal Half Price Book of the Month

Kindred by Octavia Butler

Kindred by Octavia E. Butler

I almost don’t know where to start talking about Kindred. It’s emotionally challenging yet deceptively easy to read; it combines straightforward prose with horrific themes.

On her 26th birthday, in 1976, Dana, a young black woman, is pulled abruptly from her life in California into early nineteenth-century Maryland. She’s thrown back into a society where slavery is the norm. That the consequences of this time travelling for Dana are dire is made clear in the prologue; she is going to come to serious harm.

It’s a devastating portrait of slavery and the inhuman acts people are able to inflict upon those they have designated other. Essential reading.
