27 September 2021

So there have been various stresses at Persephone Books recently, one or two have been detailed on our Instagram posts, most of them  are now resolved, and we are looking forward to our first event in the upstairs room on Friday (Elizabeth Day in discussion about They Were Sisters, a few tickets still available). Last week we were briefly in Cambridge, and the definite highlight of the day was the new Newnham garden, new because it isn't formal any more but ravishingly beautiful and wild. This sunflower bed also has courgettes and marrows and brussel sprouts!  So the Post this week will be devoted, soothingly, to pictures of Newnham garden.
