Looking for something different to do this month? What could be more exciting than exploring new ideas and worlds with their creators? At the Hungerford Bookshop, we are believers in opening up book discussion and giving our customers access to the many brilliant authors out there. Take a look at some of the acclaimed writers we have hosted over the years. Our events are always held at one of the fantastic (and often historic) local venues in Hungerford and ticket prices often include money off the title being discussed and a glass (or two) of wine. See below for our latest events.
Royal Biographer Penny Junor will be giving an illustrated talk to celebrate the release of her latest book.
All The Queen's Corgis is a look at all the dogs our Sovereign has owned during the course of her life, their individual personalities, quirks and eccentricities and the special relationship she has had with them. This fun and affectionate book complete with wonderful photographs tells the stories of the Queen's closest companions over the years, her beloved corgis, dorgis and gundogs. From the people they have bitten over the years to the scrapes they have been involved in, All The Queen's Corgis will tell you how they live, what they eat, who prepares their food and who gives it to them how they are trained, where they are walked and where they are buried after their deaths.
A book for dog-lovers everywhere on what really makes our much-loved and longest reigning monarch truly light up.
Hungerford Town Hall, 7:30pm on 20th November.
Tickets £7 (include a glass of wine and money off the book on the night)
This is a very special bookshop. Seriously diverse and fascinating authors come to talk about their books. All in all, it gives a new dimension to Hungerford and is one of the main reasons it would be hard to move to a new area!
