Description

Blackwell's Bookshop Westgate Christmas Evening

Join us at our Westgate bookshop for a special Christmas Evening with authors and mince pies on Thursday 21st November.

Browse the best of this year's new books and get your Christmas shopping in the bag before December begins.

We are delighted to be joined by three wonderful authors, the poet A F Harrold, the food writer Kate Young and the environmentalist Natalie Fee. They will be giving short talks about their books throughout the evening.

5.30pm A F Harrold - Midnight Feast: Tasty Poems

One thing that unites us all - across time, nations and peoples - is food. From chocolate, rice pudding and sandwiches to breakfast in bed, banana phones and the fruit of a mythical jelabi tree, A.F. Harrold has brought together a wonderful and diverse collection of poems on the topic of food.

6.15pm Kate Young - The Little Library Year: Recipes and Reading to Suit Each Season

The Little Library Year takes you through a full twelve months in award-winning food writer Kate Young's kitchen. Here are frugal January meals enjoyed alone with a classic comfort read, as well as summer feasts to be eaten outdoors with the perfect beach read to hand. Beautifully photographed throughout, The Little Library Year is full of delicious seasonal recipes, menus and reading recommendations.

7pm Natalie Fee - How to Save the World for Free

There is no greater aspiration than saving the world. Natalie Fee's upbeat and engaging book is a life-altering guide to making those changes that will contribute to helping our planet. Covering all key areas of our lives, from food and leisure to travel and sex, Natalie will galvanise you to think and live differently. You will feel better, live better and ultimately breathe better in the knowledge that every small change contributes towards saving our world.

RSVP for a mince pie and a glass of wine. Free to attend. We look forward to seeing you on festive form.
