The Base Bookspace originated from a lifelong love for the written word. As a Black-owned business it is it's goal to promote books by Black authors and encourage reading in the Black community. Every month five books will be added to the collection with a focus on recently published works by young authors.

Based in the Netherlands, The Base is looking to offer a platform to upcoming Afro-Dutch writers and sell literature from Suriname and the Antilles as well as promoting other Afro-diaspora and African writers, regardless of nationality.

The Base Bookspace is a homebase for the whole community, including LGBTQ+ authors and readers.
