Booktime, the Independent Booksellers magazine from Bertrams Books, wrote an article about the RISC bookshop and bookclub.
We stock a range of contemporary and classic fiction from the Majority World's best authors, from Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie to Hari Kunzru; from Xin Ran to Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
We have a range of non-fiction titles covering art, cookery, sport, music, theatre and more.
We have a great range of children's books, all about countries around the world, written by authors from Africa, Asia, South and Central America and the Caribbean.
In the book shop you will find our resource centre, with over 3000 Global Citizenship teaching materials including books, activities, videos, photo packs and much more. Every curriculum area is covered, and many cross-curricula themes as well. You can purchase all of RISC's own publications from our resource centre, or via our online shop.
risc book club
The book club meets once a month to discuss new and classic international fiction. We aim to support the work of authors from the Majority World, that is, Africa, Asia, South and Central America and the Caribbean, by reading their novels and poetry.
an ethical alternative to amazon
If we don’t stock the book you want, order it online from hive.co.uk. Collect it from the world shop free of charge or have it delivered to your home. Selecting world shop books as your favourite independent bookshop means RISC benefits.
