                                       COVID19 UPDATE:

We have now had cancellations for all the physical events planned in the shops for Feminist Book Fortnight in 2020. However, there is still lots going on around feminist books and writers on-line so keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages for events you might find interesting. Do stay well and stay safe.


Following on from last year’s 2018 amazing success, Feminist Book Fortnight was back with a bang in 2019! In 2019,  3 of the feminist libraries put on events alongside a dizzying array of 50 independent bookshops all over the UK and Ireland.  A list of participating venues for 2020 can be found here and is always being added to.

Feminist Book Fortnight also went international in 2019 with Italian bookshops Marco Polo and Otherwise, in Venice and Rome respectively, joining the celebrations.

If you are interested in taking part in Feminist Book Fortnight in 2020 please email Jane at Five Leaves Bookshop, (bookshop@fiveleaves.co.uk).  Five Leaves co-ordinates Feminist Book Fortnight (but shops and other venues organise their own displays and events).
