We will be providing books for a talk by Josceline Dimbleby organised by Bartons’ History Group on November 26th at 7.30 at the Alice Marshall Hall, Middle Barton.
Josceline Dimbleby, the well-known cookery writer, will talk about her book A Profound Secret – the tale of her discovery of a cache of letters written by pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones to her great grandmother May Gaskell, who lived nearby in Kiddington Hall.
For the cooks amongst us, she will end her talk by explaining how family travels throughout her life inspired her love of cooking. Her new book Orchards in the Oasis is packed with recipes developed from her childhood in the Middle East.
She will be signing copies of both books.
Tickets £6 available from The Woodstock Bookshop - for more information contact Chris Jones, tel: 01869 340409, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to The Woodstock Bookshop
The shop opened in May 2008 and is on the main road in Woodstock, just next to the bus stop. We can supply most books to order by the next day and have several thousand books in stock: to order books ring or email the shop. We have a large selection of children's books and are happy to advise and recommend. We can also supply second-hand and out-of-print titles. We offer discounts for school orders and for book clubs and have a free local delivery service.
We were on the regional shortlist for Independent Bookshop of the Year in 2009, 2013 and 2017, and listed in the recent Independent's Top 50 UK Bookshops.
Two monthly book groups take place at the bookshop - a poetry group, initially formed to read collections submitted for the annual T S Eliot Prize and now following a slightly wider brief; and a book group focusing more on fiction. Both are open to everyone but occasionally space is limited - please contact us for details.
We hold a series of informal talks and readings throughout the year. If you buy any book at the talk the cost of the ticket will be deducted. Please ring or email to book a place - early booking advisable.
The Woodstock Literature Society also holds an excellent series of monthly talks - do visit their website for further details.
