Christmas is just around the corner and we are open today, and tomorrow and Tuesday. And we have books - all kinds, for all ages.
If, shockingly, you need non-book gifts, you’ll find fantastic cards & ethical presents - board games, gloves, rugs & more at DIGGER, just next door to the bookshop.
Boris’ election was devastating to many of us- but our community rallies and we’ve been blown away by the solidarity we’ve seen since Dec 12th.
In 2020 we’ll be hosting monthly solidarity socials to share resources & information, plan local action & indulge in good coffee & cake. Dates will be announced early January - but ideas for community speakers to invite (would be paid) or topics to really explore - from homelessness to accessibility, benefits, mental health, radical parenting - are all very welcome.
Thanks again for all your support this year - looking forward to many more gatherings, discussions & bookish chats in the new year!
We’ll be kicking off events for 2020 with Jo Clifford headlining Inky Fingers, and the launch of Marbles Mag #5 with Kirsty Logan, Lola Keeley & Sean Wai Keung. We’ll be welcoming back Thomas Schmidinger for a new book on Rojava, AFRIN and be hosting a number of community gigs - and that’s just to get started.
Wishing you all a magnificent, restful end to 2019.
Love & solidarity,
The Lighthouse family
