Book Signing Tomorrow

Good afternoon to one and all. We are very excited to announce that local children’s authors Jane and Adam Garethson will be signing copies of their latest novel tomorrow. Their new book, Playground Muggers, is the 23rd in the popular Tipsy & Tom series for the under-fives. The books follow the adventures of the drunken young brother and sister as they get to grips with growing up in a crime family in suburbia (allegedly based in Beckworth and drawing on both authors’ traumatic childhoods). I’m told that in this story the sozzled tots learn how to raise money, with menaces, at their new infant school. No doubt with hilarious consequences. It’s sure to be a thrilling page turner for young and old readers, so see you tomorrow afternoon. Nita Glamorgan. Manageress. Iceystones Bookshop.

Berry Exciting Book Signing Today

Mary Berry will be signing copies of her new book, Straw Berry, from 5 today in our newly painted book shop cafe. The hefty tome is the latest instalment in her 31 volume autobiography and deals with her teenage years between the wars when she and her friends lived in a barn and solved mysteries. “My formative years were a lot like being in the Famous Five” her press release states “But without Timmy the dog and with me baking cakes to snare villains and murderers.” It’s sure to be an amazing page turner.
