Black British Book Map

The National Literacy Trust has created a digital map of Black and Black British authors, illustrators, publishers and bookshops from all over the UK.

The original version of the map was created as part of the Connecting Stories campaign and in support of the Black British Book Festival in Birmingham, but has been digitised and updated this Black History Month.

This map will never be a finite list of Black and Black British authors, illustrators, publishers bookshops over the UK but will be updated regularly to continue to highlight literary talent across the UK.

The Trust has also created book lists to highlight and uplift Black and Black British authors and illustrators and their work.

To view the map and the lists, visit the National Literacy Trust website.
