Persephone Book Group: 19th March at Bird's Yard

One of our most popular sections in Bird's Yard is the shelves of Handpicked Books. They find and stock a whole range of interesting, unusual and beautiful books you won't find just anywhere. Some of these books are published by Persephone who specialise in forgotten classics, mainly by women writers. They're republished in the beautiful grey covers with beautiful patterned designs on the inside and on their bookmarks. And for fans of Persephone Books we're having our first book group specialising in their titles this month.

The first Persephone Books group will take place in Bird's Yard on the evening of 19th March from 6pm. It's been arranged by Evelyn from Handpicked Books and will take place 4 times a year for fans of the books to discuss their favourite titles - and of course if it proves popular it could come back more often! 
The March group will discuss Miss Buncle's Book by DE Stevenson. Published in 1934 the novel is a lighthearted and fun story about Miss Buncle who writes a book, anonymously, about the small village she lives in. The fun starts as residents recognise themselves and try to discover just who wrote it. 

You can find a little review to give you a taste over at Books With Bunny.

If you'd like to attend the book group just let Evelyn know of your interest by emailing her at so she can give you the details and we can work out how much space we'll need!
