Fantastic to have the legendary Sam Warburton in the shop this evening signing copies of his book Open Side. Thanks to everyone who came 🏉 . . #SamWarburton #OpenSide #rugby #booksigning #book #indiebookshop #penarth
Japan calling! Are you getting excited for the rugby world cup, kicking off this week? . When it's all over we have a real treat in store for you - come and hear Wales manager Warren Gatland talking about his life, career and of course how Wales fared in Japan! He'll be chatting with Ian Hunt of BBC Sport at the Hilton in Cardiff on Nov 19th - book now as places are limited (booking link in bio). . Tickets include a signed copy of 'My Autobiography' (no not mine, his 😄) .
How beautiful is this limited edition of Jessie Burton’s powerful new novel! . What’s it about, do I hear you ask? . “...Secrets and storytelling, motherhood and friendship, and how we lose and find ourselves.” . I’m in! .
Hooray, hooray, it's Roald Dahl Day! . And to celebrate, we have these specially produced #Matilda books for just £1 - or FREE with any other Roald Dahl book purchased. Mae llyfrau Roald Dahl yn gymraeg gyda ni, hefyd! .
Here's a sneak peek of our Sam Warburton books just delivered ready for next Wednesday's book signing! They're under strict embargo until the night so we'll be keeping them under lock and key... . There are still a few tickets left for the signing (link in bio), or let us know if you'd like us to reserve a signed copy for you to collect afterwards.
The wait is over - #Testaments has arrived - and there's a free tote bag with every purchase (while stocks last)! Now just leave us alone for a few hours....
Is there no end to the man's talents??? . This new action packed picture book adventure celebrates the fun grandparents and grandchildren can have when their imaginations run wild. A magic compass helps too! .
Lots of excitement in store for the book lovers of #Penarth over the next couple of months! . Why not sign up to our mailing list (via griffinbooks.co.uk home page) to make sure you don't miss out. You can also get more details of all our upcoming events and book tickets via the booking link in our bio. .
Just rearranged our behind-thecounter wall display to show off some of the beautiful children's books that have arrived in the shop lately. . (Under a rather apposite quote from the wonderful Booker-shortlisted Margaret Atwood...)
Rachel and Mel got very excited when our signed, indie--bookshop-exclusive copies of Tracy Chevalier's new novel arrived in the shop! They both loved the book when they read the proof copy and can't wait to share it with you all. . If you enjoy needlepoint, cathedrals, history or just a thoroughly good read, this one's right up your street! Just look at the beautiful foil detail on the cover too ☺ . It's published today, so let us know if you'd like a copy put aside. .
We absolutely love this Atlas of Amazing Birds from the brilliant @mattsewell - even the endpapers are stunning!
A perfect way to squeeze some beautiful writing from around the world into your reading life. #FairlightModerns are a gorgeous series of literary novellas from different countries - the ideal size to slip into a pocket or bag for a journey. . Which one catches your eye?? .
