Storytime in Uppsala - Change of dates!

Storytelling for Children in Uppsala – Saturday 20th May

UPPSALA | Saturday 20th May at 11:00

CHANGE OF DATE! Storytelling for Children in the Uppsala shop will be on May 20th (instead of on the 13th). 

What happens when things are not quite what they seem and people says things they don't really mean?

Come to storytelling on Saturday 20th May in Uppsala and hear some stories about trickers who get a taste of their own medicine!

We’re the Shop of the Year 2017!

Dropping into History

Two young men (one from Britain, one from Poland) were parachuted into German occupied Europe during the 2nd World War. Both became heroes in their own right and wrote books about their experiences.

Join us in the bookhshop and listen to their sons Paul Kessel and Janusz Zabielski recall their fathers’ unique contributions to the fight against Nazism and talk about the books ­Surgeon at Arms and First to Return.

Tickets 60 kr – get your ticket today at the bookshop.

UPPSALA

Reader of mystery novels?
Lover of crimes?

Join the Crime Reading Group in Uppsala! We meet once a month to discuss a mystery novel, either a more hard-boiled, noir kind of book (Tough Crime), or a more classic crime (British Crime). Leading the discussions is author James van Loon.

On Monday 24 April we’re dissecting Sunset City by Melissa Ginsburg and on Monday 22 May we discuss what’s making A High Mortality of Doves by Kate Ellis fly. (The novel that is, the doves aren’t flying anywhere...)

Sign up at the bookshop.
