About the event
Want to get more into reading? Looking to mix with people with similar interests to you? Shelf Interest (our book club) offers the opportunity to connect with others through a love for reading stories from authors within the African Diaspora.
Our Launch Event is a lunch mingle centred around our first book of the month, "Edge of Here" by Kelechi Okafor.
Kelechi Okafor is a multi-talented writer, actress, social commentator, presenter and author! Known for her punches of truth, quick-wit and strong sense of justice, Kelechi hosts the popular podcast: "Say Your Mind". With her debut book "Edge of Here", she lets us into her inner world and presents a collection of fictional stories based on themes around love, race, mental health, womanhood and exploitation, presented through a dystopian lens.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Ehime Ora will no longer be in attendance of this event as previously promoted.
What to expect at our event
- Meet Kelechi Okafor: discuss the themes within the "Edge of Here" book, get your copy signed, and ask questions!
- Win a copy of "Ancestors Said" by Ehime Ora. Gold Members get a free copy of this!
- Have some tasty food: We'll be providing lunch for all attendees
- Play some games: Team up with different people and work together to win!
- You are NOT expected to have read the book as it would have only just recently been released. A virtual meeting discussing further details about the book will be conducted later on, for members only.

"Edge of Here" will be officially released on the 14th September, however we've pulled some strings for our Gold and Silver Members to have earlier access to it!
