All Things Dulwich

As we enter darker months, the Dulwich Literary Festival brings us light and confounds the incipient dinge in our winter hat with a festival title of “Into the Light of Things” featuring events with, among others, Henry Blofeld, Alan Hollinghurst, Simon Jenkins, Robert Peston, Alexei Sayle, and Ali Smith. Some of the events will take place in the shop and we also have the generous support of Dulwich College as main venue sponsor. What more could you want to soothe a savage breast twixt the 1st and 30th of November?

Tickets are still available for most events and can be booked online at, in person at the bookshop, or by phone on 020 8670 1920.

Additionally, the Love West Dulwich Christmas Fair takes place on November 25th, which coincides with The Saturday Sanctuary, when we will have a special storytime with author and illustrator Sam Usher at 11am.
