We are more than a bookshoP.
The Common Press is London's Day & Night intersectional queer Bookshop café & Events space.
The Common Press is a lot of things to a lot of people. As London's first consciously queer intersectional bookshop, we champion titles by authors from a wide range of marginalised backgrounds. Additionally, we have four spaces in the building, the venue is a lot bigger than you think. We host a diverse range of events every day —from dance classes, yoga sessions, book clubs, family-friendly events, book launches, workshops, parties, activation events, poetry nights, and social gatherings. There isn't an event we haven't hosted.
Whether you're looking for the latest novels by your favorite gay, lesbian, queer, trans, and non-binary authors; seminal works of Black history; fourth-wave feminist theory; or that niche book on disability activism, we either have it or know how to get it fast. It's not just novels and theory—we also stock poetry, plays, graphic novels, and a great collection of books for children and young adults. And if, after all that browsing, you're feeling a bit tired, we make a pretty great coffee and cuppa as well.
What we're reading this Month:
Each Month The Common Press Booksellers will recommend some books. You will also find multiple recommend cards all around the bookshop. Grab this rich, compelling and darkly Gothic book, which we are currently reading.
