Independent Booksellers’ Week Success

IBW 2014The annual Independent Booksellers’ Week took place last week and we had two brilliant events to celebrate.  Firstly, we invited all our lovely book clubbers to a very special garden party with two wonderful Bloomsbury authors – Kerry Young and Elizabeth Day.  Wine, canapés and conversation was enjoyed by all and we’d like to say a big thank you to all those who made it possible – Bloomsbury Publishing for their fabulous authors, Beverley & Martin Jenkins for the use of their beautiful house and garden, Johnny and Tony for their muscles and Jon Waller, video-maker extraordinaire – click here for the evidence!

aFor the younger generation we had our Grab your Granny Extravaganza on Saturday 5th July.  The shop was full of balloons, grannies and grandchildren signing up for our new Children’s Loyalty Scheme and entering the Prize Draw to win a hardback copy of Gangsta Granny signed by David Walliams.  If you missed the event on Saturday, there is still time to pop in, have your photo taken, join the scheme and enter the draw.  The winner will be announced this Saturday – 12th July.  In the meantime, do stop by to admire our lovely window display with photos of Frinton’s Glorious Grannies and their proud grandchildren.
