Events at BookBar
BookBar is far more than a bookshop. Our events are at the heart of what we do, bringing people together through books.
We've recently hosted events with Hanya Yanagihara, Caleb Azumah Nelson, Monica Heisey, Dolly Alderton, Naoise Dolan, Curtis Sittenfeld, Nikki May, Emma Gannon, Shon Faye, Monica Ali, Julia Armfield, Laura Bates, Emily Ratajkowski, Natasha Lunn and Gabrielle Zevin amongst others.
Watch this space for our regular and special events, and sign up to our mailing list to keep up to date with all the latest news.

The BookBar BookClub
BookBar is all about bringing people together through books. We know that half the fun of reading the book is discussing it with fellow readers afterwards, preferably with a glass of wine or cup of coffee.
BookBar's book club is created especially for that purpose. Our virtual book club promises all the fun of the in-person thing, and some additional surprises.
How does it work?
Sign up, receive your book in advance of the book club with plenty of time to read it, send in the questions and discussion points you'd like us to talk about, and come along to a virtual interview with the author, in which we'll discuss the book. You'll receive a link to the online event a few days before.
Your ticket price includes a copy of the book, as well as attendance at the virtual event. Buy a ticket to a single event for £18 or subscribe to the book club for £15 a month.
As we pick the freshest paperbacks, the books get sent out at the same time each month to all subscribers, regardless of when the ticket was purchased, so the 3-5 day shipping window does not apply for BookClub purchases as in most cases the books have not yet been published when the programme is launched.
***NB: If you have previously subscribed to the BookClub and are still making monthly payments, you do not need to sign up again as your subscription is still active***
