Joint Book Launch – Wed 29th March

Joint Book Launch

7pm, Wednesday 29th March 2017, Feminist Library.

Gail and Sarah would love you to come to our Book Launch Party, when we will also be celebrating the refurbishment of the Feminist Library Meeting Room. Murder Mile and Other Riffs & Rants by Gail Chester is published by Free Radicals Press and Making Pink Lemonade by Sarah O’Mahoney is published by Good Being a Girl. Both books are available to buy from the Feminist Library Bookshop at £7.99.

Sarah O’Mahoney works at the Feminist Library and feels like it’s her second home. Making Pink Lemonade – her first novel for teenagers tackles the still taboo subject of Periods, and how young Kali begins to love and be positive about hers. For more info and to buy direct, email

Gail Chester was an original founder of the Feminist Library in 1975. She helped to save it from closure in 2004, and has been doing pretty much the same ever since. Her book of short pieces, which includes the award-winning Murder Mile, blurs the distinction between poetry, flash fiction, and creative non-fiction. The book reflects the preoccupations of a radical Jewish feminist, not drowning but waving in Hackney today.
