About this session
The Women in Rail South Bookclub continues with our June book, The Girl with the Louding Voice by Abi Dare.
At fourteen, Adunni dreams of getting an education and giving her family a more comfortable home in her small Nigerian village. Instead, Adunni’s father sells her off to become the third wife of an old man. When tragedy strikes in her new home, Adunni flees to the wealthy enclaves of Lagos, where she becomes a house-girl to the cruel Big Madam, and prey to Big Madam’s husband. But despite her situation continuously going from bad to worse, Adunni refuses to let herself be silenced. And one day, someone hears her.
Described as “a story of courage that will win over your heart” by Stylist and shortlisted for the 2020 British Book Awards Debut of the Year this is an opportunity for the book club to get back into fiction for the month.
The book club discussion will take place on Zoom and will be a reflection on the themes in the book and what we’ve learnt from them. Not only will we have a great discussion on the book of the month, there will be the opportunity to engage with others in the Women in Rail South community. It will also be a chance to give your suggestions for future books for us to read and share together.
