The Perils of Running a Bookshop

Saturday 13 May 2023, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM, Featherston School Hall. $15

What's the worst thing that can happen running a bookshop? An uncontrollable obsession with collecting books might be the least of it. What about shoplifting ... or murder? Come and hear the fascinating stories of the dangers (and joys) of bookselling with Ruth Shaw, author of The Bookseller at the End of the World, Renée whose latest crime novel Blood Matters features a bookshop-owning detective, and Joanna Ludbrook owner of the Chicken and Frog Bookshop in Featherston. Mary McCallum chairs the session.
