A series of four reading groups held over four weeks exploring 1970s non-sexist, multi-racial children's books published by feminist collectives, extending Kim Dhillon's installation 'We Tell Ourselves Stories in Order to Live' as part of the exhibition Forms of Action. Join us for sessions in which we will read and discuss together children's books which sought to present characters and stories that the collectives hoped would broaden the possibilities for children, parents, and carers who read them, and reflect a world for kids who wanted to grow up equal.

Themes explored include: representations of genders, lesbian parents, models of care, and radical and taboo subjects for children's books. Led by Dr Elsa Richardson. Attend one or all four sessions. All welcome.

Glasgow Women's Library is wheelchair accessible, with induction loop available, and disabled toilets on the ground floor.
