We are particularly pleased with readings we've arranged where authors introduce their work and themselves to our readers. These cosy and informal gatherings have included Diana Athill, P D James, Claire Tomalin, Doris Lessing, Nick Crane, Martin Amis, Jane Smiley, Simon Jenkins, Xandra Bingley, Ian McEwan, Marina Warner, Michael Frayn, Tracy Chevalier, Joan Bakewell and Selena Hastings.

We hosted a 'pop-up' event with Jeanette Winterson, who shared some of her Christmas memories, as recounted in her memoir Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?

This year our lunch with Siri Hustvedt proved to be a memorable experience.


We have also arranged and participated in a variety of other community based events. For instance, we organized a benefit for our local libraries with Margaret Atwood, set up literary benefit events for local churches, and helped raise funds for International PEN in conjunction with Umberto Eco. 
More recently we have helped to arrange fundraisers for the Primrose Hill Community Library with Alan Bennett, Derek Jacobi, Helen Fielding and Joanna Trollope.

Forthcoming Events

Lauren Child,
author of many popular children's books, including Charlie and Lola, Clarice Bean and Ruby Redford, will be signing copies of her new book The New Small Person, at 3:45pm on Friday 12th September in Primrose Hill Community Library, Sharpleshall Street, London NW1 8YN.
There is no charge for this event but we do ask that you let us know you are coming since we will need to have a queuing system in expectation of a latge attendance for this, Lauren's only London signing.
The book is available for preorder on our Home page - a proportion of the purchase price will be donated to the Library to help fund their book acquisitions.

David Mitchell is to be the guest author for our next literary lunch.  As before this will be in Greenberry - just along the street from our shop.
It will be held on Thursday 13th November, starting at 12:30pm.  Tickets are priced at 30 and will include a welcome drink, starter and main course, and coffee.
Purchase of a ticket will also entitle you to buy a copy of the book, available at the beginning of September, for a special price of 15. 
This will both guarantee that you get a copy of the first print run and also give you a chance to read the book before the lunch.
