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?
By popular acclaim this was one of our most enjoyable events! Thank you, Jeanette.
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.
Lunch with Siri Hustvedt in Primrose Hill on May 28th.
This will take place at The Greenberry Cafe.
The price of the lunch, for two courses, will be £25, not including drinks.
You can book here - if you are booking for a party of people please also send us an
e-mail giving your names so that we can put you together on the seating
