We are pleased to say that we are gently going to start having events again here at Persephone Books in Bath.
The first event will be on Wednesday, December 1st. At 3.30pm there will be tea with homemade scones, then at 4pm we shall show the very rare 1925 silent film of 'The Homemaker'. Please ring us on 01225 425050 to book your place; the cost is £10 per person.
The second event will be on Thursday, December 9th. There will be a Christmas Open Day from 10am to 8pm: mulled wine and mince pies will be served and we will gift-wrap all purchases free of charge. No booking is necessary.
(By the way, on the subject of Christmas, we have decided that we shall be open until December 24th at 2pm; then again on December 29th, 30th and 31st; then we will re-open as normal on January 4th.)
Finally, in January we are planning to re-start the Persephone book group. The evening book group will be on the second Wednesday of the month at 6pm and will be reading the Grey books, starting with PB no.1, ‘William - an Englishman’ on January 12th; madeira and Bath Olivers with cheese will be served. The morning book group will be on the third Thursday of the month at 10.30am and will be reading the Classics, starting with PB no.2, ‘Mariana’ on January 20th; coffee and a slice of cake will be served. Each book group has space for 15 people and will be led by a member of the Persephone team. Please ring us on 01225 425050 to book your place; the cost is £10 per person.
