Self-help books, podcasts and all sorts of positivity encouraging messages bombard us on a daily basis. Whether it’s on social media or recommendations from those close to us, it can be hard to know which advice to follow and what is best avoided. Counter at Native Edinburgh will host the Scottish book launch of Feel Good Club on Thursday, September 29, written by the well-known Manchester-based entrepreneurs, Kiera and Aimie Lawlor-Skillen.
The stunning space of Native Edinburgh will be transformed into a book club where guests will hear Kiera and Aimie Lawlow-Skillen discuss their debut book, written for the sole purpose of making people feel good. The debut book brings Feel Good Club’s trademark inspiring quotes to life, offering real-life wisdom and enabling readers to overcome life’s tough moments. Feel Good Club’s mission is to normalise sharing how we feel and make people feel good through positive, accessible self-help.
Following this event, Counter has partnered up with the Queer-owned and women-led independent Edinburgh book shop Lighthouse to bring a monthly intersectional feminist book club to Native Edinburgh’s luxurious space. While next month’s event is still under wraps, you can still get the tickets for September 29 here for only £4. And for those who are struggling financially, there are also free spaces available.
Native Edinburgh is a boutique aparthotel in New Town with 82 modern and tasteful apartments that offer guests a home away from home. Counter is the aparthotel’s lounge space where coffee and tea is served during the day, while cocktails flow freely during the night. The space also offers co-working options, as well as events.
While the darker months are creeping in too quickly, the brand new feminist book club will provide Edinburgers with a safe space to discuss ideas, meet new people and even a certain form of therapy that comes from feeling understood.
