In this month’s edition of Reader’s Bloc, we will be thinking about love and unpacking all the different definitions of love and romance we have in our dictionaries. We are reading two texts — All About Love by Bell Hooks, where she very wonderfully challenges our notions of love and how we perceive it; and bits from If Beale Street Could Talk by James Baldwin, a lovely novel that explores the various kinds of love we depend, on even when it feels like all the love in our lives have been taken away.

We will be joined by one of our wonderful collective members, Aryan Gulati, who helped with the selection of the readings for this session, and will also be co-moderating it.

On registration, we will send you the text and the topics/themes we will discuss.

This programme is exclusively for 18–25 year olds.

Reader’s Bloc is an online/IRL group of readers taking part in reading, listening and sharing exercises around texts that help us learn more about ourselves, the identities we share and the communities we live in.

This session is conducted as part of our engagements for the MAP Youth Collective. The MAP Youth Collective is a community for young people (18-25 year olds) to engage with the arts and culture sector. The collective is for, of and by young people — to explore our shared identities and interests through art.
