Balance the Books

Harton Academy’s library is pleased to offer a range of new books as part of our collaboration with New Writing North’s Balance the Books initiative.

Balance the Books is all about celebrating diverse literature. You’ll find amazing books by authors from a wide range of underrepresented backgrounds, including but not limited to:

  • people of colour
  • disabled people
  • LGBTQIA+ people
  • working class people
  • care experienced people

There are twenty titles on our list, so we hope everyone will find something they enjoy. We also encourage you to read widely and try out books you might not normally go for. Balance the Books is all about discovery!
