Events for Independent Bookshop Week

 We are thrilled to bring you 2 authors for the afternoon to help us celebrate IBW2017.


Stephanie Butland and Julia Chapman will be joining us for a spot of GUEST BOOKSELLING and then a cosy chat with cream tea and birthday cake.

Saturday July 1st, 3:00pm to 5:30pm (more details below)

Please reserve your tickets by June 23rd.


 STEPHANIE BUTLAND, whose books include Letter to my Heart and The Other Half of my Heart began her writing career during her "dance with cancer" and now she's a novelist. She also works as a speaker and trainer and works with charities to help raise awareness and money "in the hope that cancer will soon be about as scary as a wart."

Lost for Words is set in a second hand bookshop in York with trips to the seaside and features open mic poetry evenings and a past (or two).

It caused Kate Fforde to make up a word to describe it "unputdownable"!  


JULIA CHAPMAN is the pseudonym of Julia Stagg. Julia currently lives in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales in the north of England. When not writing, she spends her time out in the hills, running on the fells that provide the beautiful setting for the Dales Detective novels, or riding her bike through the small hamlets and villages that are a vital part of her books.

Her latest novel Date With Death is the first of a new series about which Julia says  "Think Midsomer Murders but with fewer murders and more sheep."

"A classic whodunit... riddled with Yorkshire humour (and dry stone walls)" Cath Staincliffe.


Guest Bookselling from 3:00pm to 4:00pm, come along and get some ideas and inspiration from Stephanie and Julia.

4:00pm to 5:30pm. Join us In Conversation as we talk books, genres, inspirations, The Pyrenees and much more over a nice cup of tea, cream tea and a slice of cake to celebrate Stephanie's birthday
