About the Event

Books can provide such comfort and joy, and for book lovers, few things beat walking into a real bookshop and browsing the shelves. Agree? Join us for this event with writer and journalist Cathy Rentzenbrink and Fairlight Books founder Louise Boland.

Cathy's new book Dear Reader is a funny and moving account of how books have kept her afloat in life, lighting her way to a path as a bookseller and then as a writer. and showing her that no matter what the future holds, reading will always help.

Louise's Bookshop Tours of Britain is a slow-travel guide to Britain, navigating bookshop to bookshop, journeying from the Jurassic Coast of southwest England, over the mountains of Wales, through England's industrial heartland, up to the Scottish Highlands and back via Whitby, the Norfolk Broads, central London, the South Downs and Hardy's Wessex.

The conversation will be chaired by Sarah Franklin, author and Senior Lecturer in Publishing at Oxford Brookes University.

Tickets are priced at £25, to include a copy of Dear Reader and Bookshop Tours of Britain. If you would like to buy a ticket only for £6 with the option to buy individual copies of the books please click here.
