Book Club

We have a lovely book club that meets at Bookish on the 1st Monday of Each month for book discussion, cheese & wine.

This month’s book is:

July 2017 – The Submission by Amy Waldman

A jury gathers in Manhattan to select a memorial for the victims of a devastating terrorist attack. Their fraught deliberations complete, the jurors open the envelope containing the anonymous winner’s name – and discover he is an American Muslim. Instantly they are cast into roiling debate about the claims of grief, the ambiguities of art, and the meaning of Islam. 

For local Book Groups we offer a 10% discount when 5 or more copies of the same book are purchased.


Signed Books

A Signed Edition makes a book a little more special, creating a connection between author and reader. Signed books are collectible and they can make an extra special gift. And we have a large selection of signed ones!

All signatures are hand signed by the author in ink. Books are either signed for us at one of our author events or with the respective publisher.

Demand for some titles can be high. All orders are processed in order in which they are received.


Gift Vouchers

Bookish Gift Vouchers make an excellent present for the book lover in your life and can be purchased in denominations of £5, £10 and £20
