This week, we are doing something a little bit different: we’re hosting a mini book/film club!
My guests this week are Naomi Newman and Gaina Williams.
Naomi runs the Paper Girls: Feminist Graphic Novel Book Club, and she joined us on the show a few months ago to tell us about it. Naomi is currently serving as the Lady Mayoress of Manchester, and will be telling us all about this experience and what the role involves. With her interest in feminist graphic novels, Naomi’s expertise will come in handy when discussing the recently-released Wonder Woman film.
Salford singer Gaina Williams will be talking to us about the book that changed her life, Anita Diamant’s The Red Tent.
And with Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale currently enjoying a high profile thanks to the series currently being screened on Channel 4, we will be talking about this book as well.
Join us at 4pm on Salford City Radio!
