Three teenage girls forge an unlikely friendship when they meet at a creative writing workshop at a hip new café/workspace which used to be their library. They challenge each other with ideas, Tik Toks, lyrics, dance routines. But when they discover the workshop is connected to the state surveillance 'Prevent' programme, they have to fight back. The only question is how? Friendships fracture and loyalties are tested as they pursue different avenues of resistance. A story of sisterhood, freedom of speech and creative expression, in an era when dissent is being criminalised and the state follows your every move, online and offline. Why does being an outspoken Muslim girl have to be so damn hard? Liberation Squares is about British Muslim schoolgirls, whose adolescence is as complex, infuriating and joyous as any other teenagers, but with the added complications of Islamophobia and cultural erasure. This funny, playful and deeply humane play puts young female agency centre stage; inspired by everything from graphic novels to real-world youth activists and organisers, it asks what it means for young Muslim women to become the heroes of their own stories.

Join award-winning British journalist, news anchor and presenter Clive Myrie talking about his honest and engrossing memoir, Everything is Everything. First published last autumn, the book was an instant Sunday Times bestseller in hardback and will be released in paperback on 23rd May. As a Bolton teenager with a paper round, Clive Myrie read all the newspapers he delivered from cover to cover and dreamed of becoming a journalist. In this deeply personal memoir, he tells how his family history has influenced his view of the world, introducing us to his Windrush generation parents, a great grandfather who helped build the Panama Canal and a great uncle who fought in the First World War, later to become a prominent police detective in Jamaica. He reflects on how being Black has affected his perspective on issues he’s encountered in thirty years reporting some of the biggest stories of our time (including Ukraine and Gaza), showing us how those experiences gave him a better idea of what it means to be an outsider. He tells of his pride in his roots, but his determination not to be defined by his background in dealing with the challenges of race and class to succeed at the highest level. Moving, engaging, revealing, Everything is Everything is a brilliant blend of the personal and the professional and how the two have intersected in Clive’s life and career. It is a story of love and hate – but also hope. What you can expect from the evening: Clive Myrie will be on stage in conversation at 7.30 for approximately an hour, and then will answer pre-submitted audience questions. If you have something you would like to ask Clive, please email info@ebbandflobookshop.co.uk with your question by 7th June 2024. Each ticket includes a paperback copy of Everything is Everything.
