Clevedon Community Bookshop

Wednesday 15 March 2017                                    Reading in dangerous times Tom Sperlinger will re-consider the role of reading - and the purpose of education - in dangerous times. Drawing on his work running adult and community course in Bristol, and of teaching literature in the West Bank, he will ask what role books or universities might play in helping us to hold things in common - or speak out against the tide - in a world that is being rapidly re-made. Tom Sperlinger is author of Romeo and Juliet in Palestine (Zero Books) and is Reader in English Literature and Community Engagement at the University of Bristol. 7.00pm for 7.30pm to 9.00pm. Tickets, £8, are available from the Bookshop and include a complementary glass of wine and tapas. Tickets may be reserved but must be paid for prior to the event, by Sunday 12 March.

Welcome to Clevedon Community Bookshop. This an exciting community enterprise in Clevedon. For 14 years a small second-hand bookshop existed in Copse Road, Clevedon. The new shop is the original shop plus the one next door, enabling us to double the area. We bought 7,000 books to sell in the newly refurbished shop and started trading on the 31 December 2011.

The shop is now owned and run by people in the Clevedon area and by others committed to our objectives. We receive and sell good donated second-hand books, we also sell some new books. Our range of other items for sale include cards, gift vouchers, book-markers and cloth bags.
 
Other activities are hosted in the shop such as; literary events, story reading for children, creative writing courses, poetry reading sessions.
