Pop-Up Inclusive Kids Bookstore Launches In Brixton

The indie British publisher Knights Of are running a pop-up children’s bookstore in Brixton. It’s at 406 Coldharbour Lane, Brixton, London, SW9 8L, October 24th–29th, and will be focusing on BAME children’s lit. If you’re in the area, we really recommend a visit.

If you’re wondering who Knights Of are, they’re an indie British publisher devoted to publishing inclusive children’s books. They’re pretty great and practice what they preach, both behind the scenes and in the books that they publish. Here’s an article about what prompted them to set up.

But what if I can’t make the Knights Of pop-up bookstore?

Fear not, there’s other options! You could follow them on Twitter, Insta or Medium, or support one of their titles.

Knights and Bikes by Gabrielle KnightKnights and Bikes by Gabrielle Kent

The book of the yet to be released video game (a successfully crowd-funded project back in 2016), Knights and Bikes is a madcap adventure involving mystery, legends and two fabulous female protagonists. And also a pet goose called Captain Honkers.

 

 

For Every One Jason ReynoldsFor Every One by Jason Reynolds

Published in partnership with 404 Ink, this is a poem that speaks to the dreamers. Jason Reynolds is a New York Times bestseller for a reason and this, the publication of a piece he performed at the unveiling of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, is a passionate and deeply inspiring read.
