Foyles bookshop will be the official retail partner of Jacaranda’s Twenty in 2020 initiative. Twenty in 2020 in collaboration with Words of Colour is a trailblazing programme that will dedicate a year to publishing 20 works by Black British writers.
The partnership will consist of a year-long event schedule in Foyles stores with the #Twentyin2020 cohort, the ambassadors and the Jacaranda team, culminating in a big finale celebration, as well as promotion through Foyles’ physical and digital channels.
Heather Baker, Campaigns Manager at Foyles, said ‘’We’re delighted to be working with Jacaranda Books on the Twenty in 2020 project. At Foyles we strive to curate and present a range of books that’s culturally inclusive, foregrounding the stories and reflecting the interests of all kinds of people, from all kinds of backgrounds. We jumped at the chance to work with them on this; to reinforce the project’s mission, to support and encourage independent publishing and new writing, as well as diversity in the books on our shelves.
