25. Lesbian Book Club

What do you do when your small start-up book club is so popular that you quickly become overwhelmed with new members?

For Eléonore Pratoussy of the Lesbian Book Club in East London, it signalled a need for more lesbian book groups. Happily she has a plan to expand.

Eléonore and fellow bookclubbers Caroline and Carina join Kate in the studio to talk Angela Carter, Reni Eddo-Lodge, and a ton of great book recommendations in-between.
