Amnesty Blackheath Bookfair

This year's Amnesty International (Blackheath and Greenwich group) book sale takes place on Saturday June 26th from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm.

If your reaction to this is 'so what, sounds like a jumble sale with a few books', you've obviously never been. It is a bibliophile's dreamland, a whole church packed with thousands of books. I can only assume there must be a whole load of sympathetic writers and publishing industry types in the area, because you can pick up all kind of proof copies as well as second hand bargains.

Bottom line, if you love books you would be mad to miss this.

The sale takes place at the Church of the Ascen­sion, Dartmouth Row, SE10 8BF (on the right as you go up the hill from Greenwich to Blackheath).
