Welcome to #ReadThinkAct, a brand new author interview series at Lighthouse. It's been brewing for a while, and golly are we excited to share it with you.
Read Think Act are short videos which make the connections between books and activism explicit. In each episode, we meet an author and have a conversation about what brought them to an issue, where their book takes us, and what we can do to turn words into action in our communities.
Episode 1 hosts British-Bangladeshi environmentalist and race activist 'Birdgirl' Mya-Rose Craig, celebrating 'We Have A Dream', an introduction to campaigners from around the world who share their thoughts on what needs to be done. Mya-Rose and Jessica talk about what climate justice really means. where to find strength for activism, and one of the books that inspired Mya-Rose to go out and take action.
New episodes will be announced in our newsletter, Twitter and Instagram, but you can also subscribe to our YouTube channel HERE.
