The longlist for the Man Booker Prize was announced on Thursday 27 July, and we have all the books in stock. The thirteen books selected are:
We’ve had a massive response to our fundraising activities for those affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy. So far, through raffles, auctions and donations we have raised more than £5,000. We are grateful to, and delighted by, all the support from authors and publishers who have generously donated signed copies of books. Thanks also to our many customers and supporters who have bought raffle tickets, made bids or simply made donations.
We still have a large selection of donated, signed books at the Bookshop, so if you’d like to make a donation and choose a book, please visit us.
All the funds raised are being donated to the Kensington & Chelsea Foundation, an independent charity founded in 2008, which is working with all the other charities supporting the Grenfell Tower residents.
