Here at Dulwich Books we always try and have a great week packed full of events for Independent Bookshop Week and this year is no exception!

 

Tuesday 23rd June 7pm - Meet the Authors: Summer Pimms Party

 

An evening of Pimms and new authors showcasing the best new talent from Weidenfeld & Nicholson, the publisher that brought us the likes of Kate Mosse, Gillian Flynn, Vikram Seth & Ian Rankin, we will introduce:  Laura Barnett, Catriona Ward, Colin MacIntyre and Antonia Honeywell.

 

Tickets £10 including Pimms and canapés.

 

Wednesday 24th June 7pm – ‘Nightwalking’ with Matthew Beaumont

 

We’ve all traversed London at night, giving us a little glimpse into the nocturnal world of a city that never truly sleeps. ‘Nightwalking’ offers a unique insight into the London of the shadows and the dark, and the people that have walked those streets throughout history including Dickens, Chaucer, Blake, and Shakespeare.

 

Tickets are £5 redeemable against copies of ‘Nightwalking.’

 

Thursday 25th June 7pm – Patrick Gale and Sarah Winman

 

Join us for an evening with bestselling authors Patrick Gale and Sarah Winman who will be discussing their latest novels ‘A Place Called Winter’ and ‘A Year of Marvellous Ways.’
