If you are out and about these bright and breezy days, and feel like dropping in we are now very much open for business… and crammed to the ceiling with hundreds of excellent new titles!
We're loving our uplifting daily conversations, and are now launching a new programme of events, classes and group get-togethers. Let’s help each other reaffirm what it is to be human and humane, and imagine new possibilities together.
But we appreciate if you still prefer to stay at home right now and order your books online. If so we have the perfect answer: UK-wide delivery of current UK titles… all through your very own online Wivenhoe Bookshop! Welcome to Bookshop.org, a new online platform to support independent bookshops! When you choose to shop here, rather than with certain non-tax paying multinational corporations, we get a share of the profit, and you support our business. You can choose from our curated lists, or search for any book in the 'Find a book' search box at the top of the page.
Over 45 years, the Wivenhoe Bookshop has put down deep roots and become a central part of Wivenhoe life. A visit or call to the bookshop isn’t just about a purchase, it’s a conversation, perhaps a long and discursive one, catching up with friends and making new ones. There will often be an embrace or a shared cup of tea. Our interests range from the latest adult fiction and children's books to contemporary poetry, political debate, psychogeography and much more. And we are always interested in what is grabbing your imagination too.
Our love of books, reading and the written and spoken word is about finding common ground, widening our perspectives, and sharing new ideas. The ties that bind a local community need to be nurtured and sustained, and during the last year Wivenhoe has puts its arms around us and reminded us why we do what we do at the bookshop. Thank you friends.
