The Radical Library Monthly Book Group

Radical Reading Monthly Book Group

Join us for our new radical book group! We’re getting together every month to discuss a book from our Radical Library – which we’ve set up at Left Bank in collaboration with Pluto Books. It’s an informal group and everyone is welcome, so pop down and chat about some timely political topics.

We’ll chat about the book and the themes it looks at, so you definitely don’t need to be an expert, and you are more than welcome to come along, listen and learn too.

FEBRUARY BOOK

Pedagogy of the Oppressed by Paulo Freire.

Arguing that 'education is freedom', Paulo Freire's radical international classic contends that traditional teaching styles keep the poor powerless by treating them as passive, silent recipients of knowledge. Grounded in Freire's own experience teaching impoverished and illiterate students in his native Brazil and over the world, this pioneering book instead suggests that through co-operation, dialogue and critical thinking, every human being can develop a sense of self and fulfil their right to be heard.

Although this months book is in our library, it wasn't published by Pluto book and we therefore can't offer the normal 40% discount at Pluto books.

The book is available to purchase online or we recommend local independent book shops The Bookish Type and Truman Books.
