To celebrate Black History Month, Library Services will be organising a book club for Aunt Jen by Paulette Ramsey.

Written as a series of letters from the child Sunshine to her absent mother, Aunt Jen traces the changing attitudes of a child entering adulthood as she tries to understand the truth behind her mother's departure and make sense of her relationship with her family. Aunt Jen migrated to England as part of the Windrush generation, and Sunshine's letters, written in the early 1970s, reveal something of the emotional as well as the physical gulf between those who left and those who remained behind.

You can pick up a free copy of the book from the Main Library Help desk until all the books are gone and then join us for some lively discussion led by Beverley Maynard and Rachel Webster on Wednesday 26th October 2022, 12noon – 1pm in the Main Library Training Room on the 4th Floor.

We look forward to seeing you.
