It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like...

It is a truth universally acknowledged that there is no better gift than that of books. When you're out and about in your local bookshops this festive season, why not catch a few of your favourite authors who may be signing a few copies? Or listen in on a fascinating discussion? There's a little something for everyone this month.

Bridging the gap between generations through the stories of three very different women, the latest funny and moving Salley Vickers novel is a must read. Salley will be discussing Grandmothers and her other bestselling books at Topping & Company in Edinburgh -guaranteed joy!

The latest eye-opening, page-turning Malcolm Gladwell book delves into why we so often misread people and the trouble with understanding strangers. This is set to be an incredibly interesting discussion from a writer who has consistently proven his expertise on the human experience.

Taking down the patriarchy one doodle at a time, author and illustrator Flo Perry introduces her new graphic guide to feminist sex. In her own open, frank way, it covers consent, kink and body hang-ups, paving the way for everyone to be more outspoken about what they really want from their romantic encounters. Don't miss this important liberating discussion!

The picture book that is sure to be wedged firmly in everyone's stockings this year is The Boy, The Mole, The Fox & The Horse. This wonderful story reminds us what's important in our worrying, uncertain world. Super talented Charlie Mackesy will be talking about his heartwarming debut book in Cheltenham and trust us, you need to treat yourself to this!

Chris Mould's illustrations have a certain festive charm to them, which is why you won't want to miss his drawing of Matt Haig's The Truth Pixie at Waterstones in Harrogate. Bring your books along to get them signed too!

The annual Christmas evening at Waterstones Piccadilly is always a highlight of the festive calendar and this year is already shaping up to be a good one! Jojo Moyes, Charlie Mackesy and Jacqueline Wilson are already confirmed to be signing books from 7pm with many more author guests to be announced. Away from the signings, enjoy mince pies and specialist book shopping with expert booksellers!
