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 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.
