We will be discussing - Second Class Citizen by Buchi Emecheta

The classic tale of a Nigerian woman who overcomes strict tribal domination only to encounter the hardships of immigration. Available again.

In the late 1960’s, Adah, a spirited and resourceful woman manages to move her family to London. Seeking an independent life for herself and her children she encounters racism and hard truths about being a new citizen. “Second Class Citizen pales a lot of academic feminist writing into insignificance.” –The Guardian

“Emecheta’s prose has a shimmer of originality, of English being reinvented....Issues of survival lie inherent in her material and give her tales weight.” --John Updike

Book Swap
We will have a book swap section at our events. Each person can bring two used books and will receive tokens, with those tokens you can take books other people brought in. That way we can get more people reading without any extra cost.

For more information or any questions please get in touch: bookclub@icsn.co.uk


In memory of the wonderful Author - May she rest in perfect peace.
