Join us at the Bookshop on Tuesday 2 December from 5 to 8 pm for our famous Christmas Discount Evening
There’ll be festive food and drink, and the usual friendly atmosphere of our customers choosing Christmas gifts.
Special guests this year include Barbara Nadel, Luci Gosling, John Dolan and his thoughtful dog, George, and Québécois author Denis Thériault.
John Dolan is a street artist whose life was transformed when an exhibition of his drawings was put on at the Howard Griffin gallery last autumn. He has now written a memoir of his life with his dog, John and George: the Dog who Changed My Life.
John Dolan was featured in Spitalfields Life in October 2013.
Denis Thériault is a screenwriter based in Montreal. His second novel, The Peculiar Life Of A Lonely Postman was published in September 2014.
Historian David Rosenberg’s talk will focus on life for Polish Jews in the 1930s and the fight against antisemitism and fascism before the Nazi invasion, as well as aspects of the resistance in the ghettos – especially the Warsaw ghetto during the Holocaust. He will be identifying some individual stories. David will also reflect on helping to lead a trip of anti-racist activists and trade unionists to Auschwitz in November 2017.
