Christmas Picks Night

Christmas Picks 2020



Join us for our 5th annual Christmas Picks Night.


Four reps from publishers Harper Collins, Penguin Random House, Allen & Unwin and Macmillan will come and tell us about their favourite


titles for kids this Christmas. Let them inspire you with ideas for books for the children in your life, while enjoying wine and nibbles,


spot prizes and bookish banter. We also offer a 10% discount off all purchases on the night.
