Sept 16th: Robert Harris in Conversation with Jon Snow – a Penguin Live event

Click on the image to book your place. The ticket includes a signed copy of the book which we will post straight out to you.

In an exclusive online event on September 16th at 7pm, Robert Harris, author of thirteen bestselling novels including the Cicero Trilogy, Fatherland, and An Officer and a Spy, will be chatting with Jon Snow, revered journalist and much-loved news presenter about his new novel V2.

Join them as Robert Harris launches his latest novel in which he returns to Nazi Germany to tell the story of the V2 rocket. On the brink of defeat, Hitler commissioned 10,000 V2s – ballistic rockets that carried a one-ton warhead at three times the speed of sound, which he believed would win the war. In a story with the same level of historical detail, depth and intrigue as we’ve come to expect, hear Robert’s own insight into another thriller you can’t put down, and his characters that pop from the page.

The event will also feature an audience Q&A, giving you a chance to ask those questions you’ve always wanted to know from the mind of a creative genius. This is definitely a conversation you don’t want to miss!

All tickets include a signed copy of the book (RRP £20). Tickets are £20 + £3 postage and packaging. V2 is published on Thursday 17 September, and should reach your door in the week after publication.


BookYak on Zoom Tuesday 23rd June

BookYak Goes On-Line!

This year, before our lives changed due to Coronavirus, we had our first ‘BookYak’ evening. People came together in the bookshop to chat about the books they had been reading and enjoying recently.

Now, during Independent Bookshop Week (20-27 June) we will be holding BookYak as an online event on Zoom this Tuesday at 8pm

As well as hearing about the books you have been reading recently we will be highlighting forthcoming books that we are especially excited about.

So, register here. The Zoom link is below, and we’ll send it to you again just beforehand. On the night sit down with one or two books to hold up to the screen so we can see what you are talking about, and maybe a glass of wine or cup of tea. No need to have a speech ready about your chosen books – just a few words about what it was about or why you liked it. It’s all very friendly and informal.

We hope to see you there!
