We have just arranged for Don Paterson to come to Woodstock and give a reading on 22 May at 7pm in Woodstock Methodist Church. He has been in Oxford this term, as Weidenfeld Visiting Professor of Comparative Literature at St Anne's College Oxford, where he gave a series of four lectures on different aspects of poetry. This will be a reading of his own poems - his Selected Poems is about to be published in paperback by Faber and there should be advance copies available.
Don Paterson is a wonderful poet - for information about him see his website, here.
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.
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 and Wootton Village Hall also hold excellent series of monthly talks - do visit their websites for further details.
