We are delighted to share that we will move our bookclub back into the shop for in person discussion!

Please email for details or to join the mailing list, to linda@bookspaperscissors.co.uk.

We have two sessions, each one covering the same book so just pick the session that suits you. It's a relaxed and unintimidating sharing of views and opinions.

Evening is on Thursdays 7pm - 8pm.
