As a nation we are living through turbulent times, but the UK’s vibrant book community continues to provide a safe and nurturing space for activism, progressive thinking and freedom of speech. Books have the power to educate us, challenge us and provoke us into taking action – it’s no exaggeration to say that books really do have the power to change people’s lives.

Inspired by Resist! How to Be an Activist in the Age of Defiance, we are encouraging booksellers, publishers and readers to post on social media using #BooksForChange, celebrating the special books that continue to inspire readers to take action. Help us create a reading list of books that will compel people to join the fight against injustice.


#BooksForChange – get involved!

Post your #BooksForChange recommendation on 29th August. Follow us on InstagramTwitter and Facebook and share your stories about the books that you think have made a difference.
