Bedtime Stories for Worried Liberals: zeitgeist & night night

Hear Norman Lebrecht on the glory & tragedy of Jewish achievement & how it transformed our world


In the course of 100 years, a handful of men and women changed our world in terms of scientific breakthroughs in medicine and technology, the arts and politics. Many remain household names (Marx, Freud, Kafka et al) , others are largely overlooked by history and yet, when the world’s population¬† of their faith was just 0.25% they transformed the way we live. What did they have in common? All were of Jewish origin.

Bestselling author, broadcaster and arts commentator Norman Lebrecht will be talking about his latest book, Grief & Anxiety: How Jews Changed The World, heralded as ‘a dazzling masterpiece’ here on 21 Nov at 7.30.

Entry is free and you can reserve your seat via info@welbooks.co.uk, 0207 431 3770 or in person at the shop

Meet Tom Jackson, the man behind the charm, eccentricity and humour of Postcard From The Past


Dear customer,

we hope this finds you well & that you’re free on 28 Nov at 7.30 when Tom Jackson, better known as the man behind Postcards from The Past, will be dropping in to tell us all about his unfeasibly large collection of vintage postcards and explain just what it is about holidays when it was ‘nice enough to sit out in’ and trips round rainy, dismal coastal towns of England with your mum and dad that touches a tender place in all our hearts…and then, of course, there are the caravan parks.

The past, as they say, is indeed another country.

Join us to take a trip around the A roads of yore, and so much more. Free entry. Email or call to book your place.

See you soon, love, your bookshop
