Happy New Books!

4 Jan

Greetings all,

It’s been a bit quiet on here recently. Unsurprisingly, Christmas took up ALL of our time as well as organising some fab events. As winners of the Telegraph Bookclub Tour Competition, December kicked off with the third event which we were proud to host, featuring Ross Raisin. Previously shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award in 2008 for God’s Own Country, Ross read us the first chapter of his new novel, Waterline. This was followed by an interesting discussion, led by the Telegraph’s Genevieve Fox, about writing in Glaswegian dialect, tackling that second novel and the literature of Northern England. Great stuff.

We didn’t wait long for our next event; the following morning saw garden-guru and cookery writer Sarah Raven in the shop, signing copies of her gorgeous new book Wild Flowers. Sadly, I never got the chance to ask her why all my plants keep dying, but I suspect that would have been a rather long conversation and may have gotten in the way of all the book-signing.
