Bookshop News

A couple of bits of news from two of the best shops in South London - obviously the fact that they're both bookshops gives them a formidable headstart in my view.

The Bookseller Crow in Crystal Palace (50 Westow Street, SE19) has a night with Mark Steel on Friday, 25 November 2011 at 7:30 pm, celebrating the publication of his new book 'Mark Steel's in Town'. It's free, but booking is recommended here.

Kirkdale Bookshop  in Sydenham (272 Kirkdale, SE26) has its Winter art exhibition starting tomorrow. They've also just taken stock of a new book 'A Time and a Place: Near Sydenham Hill by Camille Pissarro' by Kathleen Adler (Yale University press, £12), a short book about the impressionist artist's time in London and in particular his painting 'Near Sydenham Hill'.

I think I should give a plug for the Review bookshop in Bellenden (Peckham) and the Peckham Literary Festival 21st to 27th November.
