Introducing Beacon: a Current Affairs Bundle


View Linked Books

In January 2022, Lighthouse is taking the leap and starting our own book subscription! Read more about the why's and what's of this HERE.

All three subscriptions moves beyond the pages of a book, with each title tied to digital content, discussions and resources to take out in your life and community: a bundle to read, think and act from!

The Beacon bundle is your bookish companion to current affairs and a reflection of our bookshop: activist, anticapitalist, feminist, intersectional. Built around annual milestones, such as Pride and Black History Month, the bundle is also nimble enough to reflect events and debates as they arise. Each bundle will feature a non fiction book carefully picked and introduced by one of the Lighthouse family, as well as a bookmark and a digital offering - such as a bookclub, author Q&A, video reading etc. We’ll introduce you to organisations, community groups and social enterprises working to tackle some of the issues the book addresses, and any campaigns taking place at the time of dispatch.

To give you even more of an idea of what a Beacon Lighthouse subscription might look like, we put together a list of books we WOULD have highlighted, had we come up with this idea a year ago. Below, you'll find what we may have picked throughout 2021 - a subscription time travel, if you will, should you be tempted to try the real thing.

To get updated when subscriptions are open, sign up to our newsletter HERE.

In the meantime, if you like the look of the bundles you can make any book order extra special this Christmas by MAKING IT A BUNDLE for £8.
