Event Information

Bestselling Author, Mark Forsyth talks about and signs his new book, The Unknown Unknown Bookshops and the Delight of Not Getting What You Wanted in Honour of Independent Booksellerís Week

Saturday 05 July 2014
6:30

The Unknown Unknown Bookshops and the Delight of Not Getting What You Wanted is a specially commissioned essay by bestselling author, Mark Forsyth for the Booksellers Association to celebrate Independent Bookseller’ week.

In his essay, Mark Forsyth will explore why Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy would never have met online, the pleasure of leafing through a dictionary, and why only a bookshop can give you what you never knew you were looking for.

Mark Forsyth said:  “To be asked to write the pamphlet for Independent Booksellers Week is both a pleasure and an honour (two things that rarely coincide).  I've spent so long snuffling around in bookshops, that it's wonderful to be able to look back at my life and call it research.  I firmly believe that the bookshop is alive and well with a long life ahead of it, and I intend to explain my reasoning.”

Mark Forsyth: Mark Forsyth is a blogger and author whose books have made him one of the UK’s best-known commentators on words. His book The Etymologicon was a Sunday Times Number One bestseller and was followed by the similarly successful The Horologicon and The Elements of Eloquence.  

Tickets are £3 and include a copy of the slim volume and light refreshments.
