Waiting for the Last Bus: an evening with Richard Holloway

April 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

£3 – £8.99

Richard Holloway and Mark Jones
in conversation

Join us at St Vincent’s Chapel, a short distance from the Golden Hare, to celebrate the paperback launch of Waiting for the Last Bus, a beautiful memoir and meditation on life and death by one of the UK’s most treasured writers.

Where do we go when we die? Or is there nowhere to go? Is death something we can do or is it just something that happens to us?

“Holloway writes with passion and honesty at all times, and the result is compelling”

Guardian

At this special event, Richard Holloway will be in conversation with Mark Jones to celebrate the paperback release of his most recent memoir Waiting for the Last Bus. There will be a reading, discussion, audience Q&A and signing. Wine will be served!

Radical, joyful and moving, Waiting for the Last Bus is an invitation to reconsider life’s greatest mystery by one of the most important and beloved religious leaders of our time.

Now in his ninth decade, former Bishop of Edinburgh Richard Holloway has spent a lifetime at the bedsides of the dying, guiding countless men and women towards peaceful deaths. A positive and profound exploration of the many important lessons we can learn, this is also a stirring plea to reacquaint ourselves with death. Doing so gives us the chance to think about the meaning of life itself; and can mean the difference between ordinary sorrow and unbearable regret at the end.

Please note this event does not take place at the bookshop but along the road at St Vincent’s Chapel. Tickets are available through our website or in store, by phone or email. Please arrive in time for the event start time of 6.30pm.
