An Evening with Jen Campbell at Winstone's Sidmouth

Bestselling author of Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops.

The Bookshop Book

Every bookshop has a story. There are bookshops in barns, boats, disused factories and railway stations. From the oldest bookshop in the world to the smallest you could imagine, The Bookshop Book explores the history of books, talks to authors about their favourite places and looks at more than three hundred bookshops over six continents.

Come to Winstone’s and hear Jen discuss her book, a love letter to bookshops around the world  and the official book of the 2014 Books Are My Bag campaign

Tickets are £3 redeemable against the book. Wine and nibbles provided. Thursday 13th November 7pm.

Love Books, Love Reading

Love Coffee

Visit and relax in our Coffee Shop.

After getting completely wired trying umpteen blends of coffee we are  pleased to offer a delicious Ethiopian fair trade blend which is quite frankly “delicious”. We also serve a range of quality teas and Fentimans cold drinks, the traditional lemonade is particularly good.

For something to nibble on with coffee we are trialing the legendary and local Moores Biscuits, let us know what you think.
