Regular Events :
3rd May 2017
We are pinching ourselves over this event.
Our second US author.
Sold over 100 million copies of his books.
One of only TWO independent bookshop events in the UK.
David Baldacci has been writing since childhood, when his mother gave him a lined notebook in which to write down his stories. (Much later, when David thanked her for being the spark that ignited his writing career, she revealed that she’d given him the notebook to keep him quiet, because “every mom needs a break now and then.”)
David published his first novel, Absolute Power, in 1996. A feature film followed, with Clint Eastwood as its director and star. In total, David has published 33 novels for adults; all have been national and international bestsellers, and several have been adapted for film and television. His novels have been translated into more than 45 languages and sold in more than 80 countries; over 110 million copies are in print worldwide. David has also published six novels for younger readers.

“Let Go My Hand”
.He is the author of The Calligrapher, which was highly acclaimed and widely translated and Self Help, which was a contender for the 2007 Booker Prize.
Let Go My Hand is a darkly comic and deeply moving twenty-first-century love story between a son, his brothers and their father. Through these vividly realized characters, it asks elemental questions about how we love, how we live, and what really matters in the end.
Ed’s fiction have been compared to Dickens (The Guardian and The Washington Post) and to Dostoyevsky (The Financial Times and The Washington Post) – as well as to Conrad (The Sunday Times), JM Coetzee (The Independent) and Julian Barnes (The Independent). With previous novels, he has won The Geofrey Faber Prize and been long listed for the Man Booker. Amazon (USA) listed Pravda as one of the best books of the year (2008) and Docx was named as one of the 21 most gifted young writers from around the world by The Hay Festival committee. His first novel, The Calligrapher, was cited by The San Francisco Chronicle as a best book of the year (2004) and was a finalist in The William Saroyan Prize (Stanford, USA).

Saturday June 17th
Redmen of Liverpool
Book signing 2PM with
Ian Calllaghan and George Rowlands
In the last years of the 19th century an American tobacco company, Allen and Ginter, began inserting plain cards called ‘stifeners’ into packets of cigarettes to protect their products from being crushed. It was swiftly exploited for commercial purposes: to advertise other products and then illustrate the cards with popular personalities. These collectables swiftly became a phenomenon. Now Rowlands has shared his passion. Featuring every Liverpool player featured in this medium, along with biographical details and contextual notes.
