Christmas can be a tricky time of year, what with the presents, the tree, the food, the family – so your local bookshop is taking some of the strain off with our early Christmas sale day! Join us on Thursday 5th December to get a one-off twenty percent discount on all books, cards, wrapping paper and stationery! We’re extending our opening hours from 9am to 9pm so you don’t miss out on this great offer – and our neighbors are helping out too. Firm favourite local cafe and bakery Gail’s will be doling out delicious mince pies, mulled wine and other treats, and chic clothes boutique Iris is matching our discount! Get all your Christmas shopping done in one swoop, and treat yourself to some seasonal fare while you’re at it – only in Queen’s Park!
Visit Queen’s Park Books on the 29th October for a unique evening of poetry, featuring not one, but two authors! Alba Arikha is an author, pianist, singer, and poet, and her latest volume, Soon, comprises a narrative poem of lyrical and atmospheric beauty. Harry Eyres is a journalist, author and poet, and his most recent book, Horace and Me, is a re-examination and celebration of one of antiquity’s most quoted and least understood poets. They’ll both be reading from their work and hosting discussion here in the shop on Tuesday 29th October at 7pm. Refreshments will be served and entrance is free – to reserve your place please call us on 020 7625 1008 or email the usual address. We look forward to seeing you soon!
We’re always excited to welcome local authors into our shop – and even more so when they’re doling out delicious sweet treats! This Sunday, local author, confectioner and all-round sugar expert Annie Rigg will be signing copies of her new book, Sweet Things, giving recipe advice, and doling out free samples of her delightful wares. Join us from 11am-1pm for a sweet Sunday!
This Saturday marks the launch of the Books Are My Bag campaign, a nationwide celebration of local bookshops, books and reading – and since we’re a local bookshop, we’re joining in the fun!
