Show Notes

In this episode, I chat with Mairi Oliver, owner of Lighthouse Books, about radical bookshops, feminist writers in Edinburgh, how the world can seem overwhelming, and books!

Lighthouse Books is a queer-owned and woman-led independent community bookshop located at West Nicolson Street, Edinburgh. The store is an unapologetically activist, intersectional, feminist, antiracist, lgbtq+ community space, celebrating diversity of thought and expression and championing voices from the margins.

 The bookshop carries 10,000 titles across most genres, from politics, history, fiction, and travel writing to Children’s books, crafts, and cookery. We are particularly passionate about radical, left-wing, and Scottish politics, intersectional feminism, revolutionary history, environmentalism, LGBT+ writing, poetry, and translated fiction.

Lighthouse Books is committed to playing its part in building a greener, fairer, kinder tomorrow.
