We love books and we love the authors who write them! We host regular events to celebrate book launches, magazine releases and more to give you a chance to get to know some of our favourite writers. 

Events are ticketed but free and include complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks on the night. You can also pick up your copy of the book to be signed by the author.

"My favourite bookshop in Edinburgh by far! The selection of books is fantastic and I found some rare gems I was unable to find anywhere else (or if I did, they were rather expensive). I already went there several times and I'll continue going. The staff is lovely, knowledgeable and the whole atmosphere of the shop is wonderful"
