Entry to our talk is free, but leaving EU will be costly : discuss
We’ll remain open late on May 17th when Ian Dunt, editor of politics.co.uk swings by to talk about his book Brexit:What The Hell Happens Now? which is helpfully subtitled Everything You Need to Know About Britain’s Divorce From Europe.
Ian specialises in issues around immigration, civil liberties, democracy, free speech and civil liberties and is a regular commentator on TV and radio. With so much at stake and so much to discuss, this will be an evening of lively debate to say the least.
Entry is free (although, as one wit on Twitter commented upon news of our event, exit will run into billions), but please do book ahead via 0207 431 firstname.lastname@example.org
Sparkling line up for this summer’s Proms at St Jude’s Litfest
We’re super-excited to be the official bookseller once more at this summer’s Litfest at Proms at St Jude’s Festival. Not familiar with it? Well how’s this for starters: the festival covers music and literature and takes place over a weekend at the idyllic setting of the Lutyens-designed St Jude’s Church (the music bit) and Henrietta Barnett School (the Litfest) just up the road in leafy NW11. Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, all proceeds go to Toynbee Hall and The North London Hospice.
Among the throng at Litfest is West Hampstead’s very own bestselling author Susie Steiner and she will be in stellar company with fellow authors the legendary voice of Woman’s Hour, Dame Jenni Murray, the Guardian’s Polly Toynbee, Nina Stibbe, Dan Cruikshank, Laurence Rees, Natalie Haynes and Joel Morris and Jason Hazeley, the team behind the recent bestselling Ladybird books pastiches.
The festival runs on the weekend of 24/25 June and, in our experience, it’s a real treat: lovely music and wonderful talks in a beautiful setting
