Join London’s Biggest Book Club

24 April 2019 | Amal Team

Cityread London has partnered with Amal for its eighth annual festival, turning the capital (and some spots further afield) into one big, interactive book club. Focusing on a chosen book each year, the festival hosts a month-long celebration of literature that helps Londoners to discover their city through its stories. For 2019, Cityread’s chosen book is Sophia Khan Is Not Obliged by Muslim author Ayisha Malik.

Launching on 1 May, the programme spans across 25 London boroughs and over 200 events, including workshops, reading group discussions and performances around the themes of the book.

The full line-up of events is here.

Meet Our 2018/2019 Partners

On 7 October 2019, we had the pleasure of hosting Amal partners from the 22 arts and culture projects we have supported since launching our programme in August 2018.

From London to Bradford

We’ve spent the Summer visiting Amal-supported projects in locations across the UK. Up next are two of our partners presenting their work in London and Bradford.
