This month our newsletter is rather more than slightly foxed with a veritable skulk of foxed offerings. We’re delighted to share a recording of last year’s Readers’ Day talk by our friend, Sir Quentin Blake, there’s news of our recent ‘slim and very foxy’ 10th anniversary publication to raise money for the Great Ormond Street Hospital School and we revisit the most famous fox of all with Travis Elborough.
In other news, we’re looking forward to getting out and about over the coming months with our first event of the season at Cogito Books in the market town of Hexham, Northumberland. This lovely independent bookshop (featured as our first ‘Bookshop of the Quarter’ below) is at the heart of community life in Hexham, and Claire and her team are friendly, knowledgeable and voracious readers – true booksellers! The event will take place on Saturday 5 July so put that date in your diaries and keep an eye out for more details in next month’s news.
Other events this year will see us popping up all over the place, from West Meon to Soho and of course our Readers’ Day will be at the Art Workers’ Guild in Bloomsbury this November as usual. We’re still planning the programme and will release more information and tickets in due course. First though, we’re off to hunt those pesky farmers with Travis Elborough and Fantastic Mr Fox. Tally ho!
