Reading is an act of resistance and writing is a form of political art. I’m very keen to read more books that make a mark on the world and offer new and exciting perspectives about the world we live in, including its joys and its flaws. Reading widely and consuming a diverse selection of literature is my intention and I’m always looking to hear more about upcoming translations or underrepresented writers. Buying books from bookshops and boycotting Amazon is essential to keep the industry alive, as well as supporting small, independent presses who take risks to bring new voices to our bookshelves. The government fears education and we should encourage more people to equip themselves with stories that could change their perspectives forever.
