Need to finish ASAP!
Small Island by Andrea Levy – this is Octobers book club pick for Black History Month in the office I work in. It’s a novel centred around the Windrush generation and the post-war environment in the UK. It’s very topical here in the UK atm so I’m very excited to read it. I helped organise this book club and host it so I have to read it. Our book club meeting is currently set to 5th December. I’m currently 150 pages in.
