We have some really exciting author events coming up with Archie Miles rounding off this year’s calendar and Matt Sewell, Horatio Clare and John Lewis-Stempel visiting Ross and Monmouth in the new year. To see our full events schedule click here or go to our Upcoming Events page.
We have two Book Groups. We welcome new members and are happy for people to come along who are considering joining the group and just wish to experience it first.
Our Ross-on-Wye group meet in the Ross store on the 1st Wednesday of every month. Our Monmouth group meet in the Monmouth store on the 1st Thursday of every month. Details of the meetings and the books we are reading can be found on our book group page here.
We offer members a 10% discount on chosen book group titles within the shop. There is no cost to join the group and refreshments will be made available on the night.
