This week is going to be very eventful at Golden Hare Books.
At half six on Thursday evening we are hosting the opening night of our new exhibition by the extremely talented local artist Marie Varley, whose work is inspired by the vanishing world of vintage postage stamps.
At 11 am on Friday we are delighted to welcome to the shop author Emma Chapman, who is currently in the middle of an epic nationwide tour of independent bookshops promoting her debut novel. How to Be a Good Wife is a brilliant, gripping tale of dark secrets and oppressive
relationships that is at once an eerie and chillingly effective thriller and, in the words of two-time Booker winner Hilary Mantel, ‘a much bigger, equally disconcerting story about the nature of feminine experience.’ Don’t miss this opportunity to meet one of our brightest young literary talents
and to pick up a signed copy of what is sure to be one of the most talked-about books of the year.
Then on Friday evening we have the latest in the series of our monthly literary salons. For July’s salon we’ll be discussing nature, writing, nature writing and the nature of writing with leading conservationist and natural historian Clifton Bain and Edinburgh-based poet and environmentalist
Juliet Wilson. As ever, refreshments will be served and debate and discussion very much encouraged.
