Do you know about The Audience Friend? It’s a great initiative connecting more people to theatre and cultural events. They often reach out with amazing cultural offers through their newsletter. The latest newsletter focuses on online content due to Corona, and includes great book recommendations plus a feature on Market FiftyFour!
The Audience Friend writes:
"The news around coronavirus means some of the shops where their books are being sold are temporarily closed and they also won't be able to organise any of their usual events any time soon. Luckily, they are all set up so you can buy them online."
Market FiftyFour recommended two books for those who are affected by the lockdown...
Book recommendation 1:
"In times like these, where borders are being shut and questions of home, belonging and migration are being redefined, a great recommendation would be 'The Story of Us'."
Book recommendation 2:
"For households with younger family members looking for diverse children book stories, a great read while spending a lot of time at home would be 'Muna & Abebe'. This is a fun and adventurous book for children (7-12yrs) written by Ethiopian student Bereket Lulseged."
