An Evening with Alastair Sawday

20th October, 2021, Steyning Cricket Club

David Boyle discusses ‘How to be English’

how to be english coverWe are very happy to present a fascinating evening with Steyning’s very own Guardian journalist, sometime parliamentary candidate, and author of over 20 books on subjects as diverse as time-banking, the middle-classes, Richard the Lionheart, alternative currencies, and allotments! David Boyle’s new book ‘How to be English’, published by Vintage, is an irreverent look at how bell-ringers, Morris men, meat pies, and cardigans contribute to our notions of what it is to be English. In these times of rising nationalism, with SNP and UKIP grabbing voters’ hearts, and a referendum on our membership of the EU imminent, there has never been a more pertinent time to ask ourselves “What does it mean to be English?”

Thursday 23rd July, 7.30 pm, at the bookshop.

A few lovely photos from local children's author and sometime bookshop staff member Jim Beckett's school visit today at East Preston Junior School. The children were full of inventive ideas and lots of books were signed! #caravanattheedgeofdoom
