High Street bookselling is under pressure. Unless the inequities in the business rates system is addressed, 275 towns in this country could lose their bookshops

Bookshops enjoy none of the financial benefits that are afforded to Amazon, and yet they give so much back and they play by the rules… as caring employers and by paying their dues to the exchequer

Bookshops are Wealth-Creators… Every £1 spent in a bookshop generates a further £1.91 in the local economy. Together the booksellers of Britain contribute £1.9 billion to the UK economy

Bookshops are Jobs Creators… Employing 24,000 people directly and supporting a further 22,000 jobs in the wider industry

Bookshops Pay Their Taxes… The amount contributed to the exchequer by booksellers each year is enough to pay the salaries of 5,000 fully qualified nurses

Bookshops are Cultural Assets… They launch and build the careers of authors; they champion reading for pleasure and affect lives; they are pivotal in their communities; they bring vitality to their high streets

Business Rates dispensation has been given to pubs in recognition of their community value with qualifying pubs getting a £1,000 discount on their annual rates

Booksellers bring both community value and cultural value to their towns and should be given the same exception

An Evening with Peter Robinson

An Evening with Peter Robinson, Sat 21st July, in the BookCafe from 7pm (doors open 6.30pm)PETER ROBINSON CARELESS LOVE E MAIL IBOTY 1sIJKT387m4caZdcz8B1R5ya

We are delighted to welcome back Peter Robinson for a Talk with Q&A followed by a book signing, of his new hardback ‘Careless Love’ (DCI Banks 25, £20 rrp).

From Peter’s Website:-   “Banks and his team find themselves with two suspicious deaths. One involves the apparent suicide of a young local student, whose body is found in an abandoned car on a lonely country road. She didn’t own a car. Didn’t even drive. How did she get there? Where did she die? Who moved her, and why?

The other case concerns a man in his sixties found dead in a gully up on the wild moorland. He is wearing an expensive suit and carrying no identification. Post mortem findings indicate that he died from injuries sustained during the fall. But what was he doing up there? And why are there no signs of a car in the vicinity?

As the inconsistencies multiply and the mysteries proliferate, Annie’s father’s new partner, Zelda, comes up with a shocking piece of information that alerts Banks and Annie to the return of an old enemy in a new guise. This is someone who will stop at nothing, not even murder, to get what he wants, and suddenly the stakes are raised and the hunt is on.”

Tickets £3 each includes Welcome drink and is redeemable against a signed copy of the book.

Tel: 01845 524353 to reserve your copy of his latest book.FB POSTER Peter Robinson July 2
