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.
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.
Launching our live events series!
Following our sell out events with Natasha Lunn, Megan Nolan, Francesca Reece and Sarvat Hasin, we are thrilled to announce a brand new live, in-person evening in conversation with Shon Faye, activist, journalist and author of the Sunday Times bestselling book The Transgender Issue. Your ticket to the live, in person event includes a copy of a book.
Tuesday 19th October, 7pm
Live at BookBar, 166 Blackstock Road, London, N5 1HA
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. While we're not able to meet in person, we've launched our virtual book club, which promises all the fun of the real 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 live interview with the author, in which we'll discuss the book. You'll receive a link to the 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 £15 or subscribe to the book club for £12 a month. If you have already bought the book via BookBar, email firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your ticket.
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***
