Come down to the bookshop on the evening of Thursday 4th October, and celebrate National Poetry Day with local poets Simon Zec, Marilyn Martin, and Judy Krolick.

Sit amongst the book-lined shelves, sip a glass or two of wine, and enjoy verses read by Simon, Marilyn and Judy, interspersed with musical accompaniment.

Simon Zec recently published his debut volume of poetry ‘Death of the Suburb’, which will be on sale on the night, alongside our special Poetry Day offer of 15% off all poetry books.

We would love audience members to bring along a favourite poem to share, too.

We were blessed with blue skies so the bookshop back garden was the venue for today's signing for Julia Donaldson's beautiful new book The Oak Tree. Julia and illustrator Victoria Sandoy @victoriasand met fans young and old and signed hundreds of books! Children munched on Sara's homemade Oak Leaf shaped biscuits, and joined in with making leaf crowns. Thanks to Penelope from @scholastic_uk for helping out and to Malcolm and his trusty guitar providing the tunes, and thanks to all who travelled from far and wide to today's event! #juliadonaldson #theoaktree #choosebookshops
