SANTA’S WORKSHOP | ’Tis the season

Give Santa (and yourself) a stress free Christmas season – get your wishlists and orders in now!

Santa would like to remind everyone it’s time to get one’s wishlists (and book orders) in – especially since the lack of lorry drivers in the UK and general pandemic disruptions might make deliveries a tad slower than usual.

Bring your wishlists to the bookshop (or send them in) so Santa’s helpers at the bookshop can get your books in for Christmas. (As long as you’ve been nice, and not naughty...)

Santa also would like to add that this wouldn’t have been an issue if freighters would have listened to him and stuck to reindeer deliveries! (And Rudolph agrees).

Author event ”A Daughter of the King”


Author event: A Daughter of the King – Catherine Pettersson

STOCKHOLM | Thursday 4th Nov at 18.00. Free!

FRANCE, 1668. Jeanne Denot boards a ship bound for Quebec – one of 800 women sent by Louis XIV to the New World known as ”Daughters of the King”. Onboard the ship she assumes a false identity. But who or what is she escaping?

Meet Catherine Pettersson as she presents a tale of betrayal and redemption. A journey of a thousand miles starts with betrayal...

Fifteen years ago, her mother unceremoniously handed her a binder filled with articles about her family and one “famous” relative in particular (at least famous in his small town in Indiana). His name: Peter Surprise. In one article, she found a throwaway line: “Peter Surprise’s great grandmother was A Daughter of the King.” This mention was the catalyst for writing the book.

Thursday 4th November at 18.00
Free event – welcome! Snacks & refreshments.
