Bill Drummond

He's coming to our shop tomorrow. It's a bit exciting really, as this is his only reading that's not in the award winning Wortastowns bookshops. It's obviously his most intimate event, and I want to say thanks to Kat at Beautiful Books for sorting this out. We talked about moving it to a bigger venue due to the demand for tickets, but I think that keeping it in the gorgeous and green surroundings of the shop is the right thing to do.
We've asked friend of the shop Mark Farley to introduce Mr Drummond, and we have the wonderful Mr Stuart Evers on door duties should it all kick off.
I'll let you know how it all went, but if you'd like a signed copy of the book please let us know.

In other news I seem to have been voted the new Chairman of the Noel Park North Area Residents Association.....seriously. I think respectability follows opening a bookshop as I was asked if i'd consider being a governor of a local school recently aswell.

We're in safe hands.
