The first Friday night of each month

kicks off from 7pm

FREE EVENT, no bookings required

On the first Friday of each month we celebrate the work of local authors in the store.

We invite a selection of authors to read one chapter from their work and to engage in a Q&A afterwards.

We will announce the authors and their published books in advance.

If you'd like to get involved, contact

This is your chance to discover a new author  - or for new readers to discover you.
