This week the Mayor is running a London is Open campaign to encourage everyone in the city to visit their local shops and restaurants. Tuesday July 7th is the dedicated bookshop day and to celebrate this we have invited novelist Clare Chambers to come and sign copies of her new book Small Pleasures due to be published on Thursday. She will be visiting the bookshop tomorrow afternoon. Let us know if you’d like us to reserve you a signed copy.
It’s a terrific book – set in London in 1957 – and tells the story of a female journalist’s investigation into an extraordinary claim by one of the newspaper’s readers. Atmospheric and very involving – based on a true story – it’s already getting wonderful review coverage.
