Phenomenal Women

We’ve long been committed to promoting women who write, and as this year sees the anniversary of some of the landmark moments on the path to gender equality it felt like the perfect time to do something really big. In that spirit, we’re extremely proud to present Phenomenal Women, our year-long celebration of great books by great women. Throughout the year each of our shops (and our website too) will host revolving displays made up of women writers from across a range of genres and subject areas. Every month we're also choosing one modern classic to offer at half-price, by way of an introduction to an author's body of work.

So, go on: read a Phenomenal Woman today.

 

Phenomenal Half Price Book of the Month

 

Segu by Maryse Conde

Segu follows the Traore family across decades and continents, through love, slavery, intrigue, and betrayal as the mighty Bambara empire faces the twin incursions of slavers from the west and Islam from the east. In richly imagined detail and beautifully evocative language, Condé immerses the reader in historical events with immense wit, pace and intelligence.
