Exclusive Books releases its 2018 Pan-African Writing Catalogue

To mark Africa Month, Exclusive Books has released the 2018 edition of its highly-acclaimed Pan-African Writing Catalogue – the only bookseller’s catalogue of its kind, worldwide.

The number of titles featured has increased, from 250 in the inaugural 2017 edition to almost 400 this year, and the bookseller has committed to keeping all titles permanently in stock, as far as possible.

The 62-page glossy catalogue is available for free to all customers, who may pick up copies at any Exclusive Books store.

As with the first edition of the catalogue, readers will find a wealth of writers in its pages – poets, polemicists, novelists, biographers and historians – whose collective voice from Africa, the UK, US, Caribbean and other parts of the diaspora makes plain the power of Black literature in our world.

“Our 2018 catalogue builds on the success of last year’s debut list of books, which drew an extraordinarily positive response from our customers,” said Ben Williams, GM: Marketing for Exclusive Books.

In developing the catalogue, Exclusive Books worked alongside publishers to bring certain titles back into print and has invested heavily in stockholding to ensure the titles are readily available for purchase in-store or online via the Exclusive Books website.

“While no catalogue can be comprehensive, and every curation is necessarily imperfect, we feel that this new list represents a significant step forward. We strive to improve and increase our selection each year,” Williams said.

Look out for the Exclusive Books 2018 Pan-African Writing Catalogue, in stores now. All books featured in the catalogue earn Fanatics members double points throughout May.
