Independent Bookshop Week (IBW) is from 15 to 22 June 2019!
IBW is part of the Books Are My Bag campaign and run by the Booksellers Association, and seeks to celebrate independent bookshops in the UK and Ireland.
We will be having our own celebrations, and we encourage you to visit to celebrate with us. Meet the Author Events, book signings, readings, free give aways …
Sat 15 June Meet children’s author, Jane Clack, signing her new book ‘Discombobulator’ from 10am. The Discombobulator if the ultimate prankster! The moral of the story is “treat others as you would like to be treated”! Come & meet Jane to talk about all things discombobulated.
On Thursday 20 June, at 7pm we’ll have poets at the bookshop, from a flourishing group of local writers. They form the North Yorkshire Stanza of the National Poetry Society. Them meet at the Oak Tree pub in Helperby,hence the name of their anthology ‘Oak Tree Alchemy’. The book is £7, signed copies will be available on the night. A free event.
Sat 22 June Great North Author Tour II, featuring 13 authors who will descend on the bookshop from 10.55am to 11.40am precisely! How many authors can you fit in a bookshop? 13 authors, 5 bookshop visits, and 1 minibus, what a madcap idea, but it will be fun!
