On Friday June 8th Nicola Beauman will talk at the Derby Literary Festival about our suffragette novels in particular and feminist fiction in general. 

On Sunday June 10th there will be suffragette events in Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast and London. ‘Thousands of women from across the UK will walk together in public processions, forming a living portrait of women in the 21st century and a visual expression of equality, strength and cultural representation.’ A group from Persephone Books will be there: to march with us please come to the shop for a cup of coffee from 10.30 onwards

At 11 am in Westminster on ‘a Wednesday in mid June’, June 13th, Lydia Fellgett will lead a Mrs Dalloway Day Walk (following a slightly shorter route than last year). Lunch will be served at Lamb’s Conduit Street afterwards. 

On Tuesday June 19th Elizabeth Crawford, suffrage historian and author of Art and Suffrage: a Biographical Dictionary of Suffrage Artists will give an illustrated talk on the subject at a Lunch from 12.30–2.30

On Wednesday June 27th at a Lunch from 12.30-2.30  Lucy Ellmann, author of the Preface, will be in conversation with Nicola Beauman about PB  123, Emmeline by Judith Rossner. 

On Tuesday July 10th we shall show twenty black and white suffragette films, in all just over an hour in length, made between 1910 and 1923. Tea and cake will be served at 4pm. 

On Wednesday September 19th at a Lunch from 12.30–2.30 Dr Matthew Ingleby, author of the excellent book called Bloomsbury which we sell in the shop, will give an illustrated talk about – Bloomsbury. 

On Tuesday September 25th at 6pm the novelist Philip Hensher, author of the Preface to The Journey Home and Other Stories, will talk informally about Malachi Whitaker and then answer questions. Wine and cheese straws will be served. 

We shall show the rather good but difficult-to-find 1953 film of Little Boy Lost (with Bing Crosby) on Thursday October 4th. Tea will be served at 4 and the film shown at 4.30.

All the events take place in the shop. Please ring us to book a place. Lunches are £25, all other events are £15 (apart from June 10th for which there is obviously no charge).

A reminder: the Persephone Book Group is on the first Wednesday of the month at 6.30 and costs £10. Madeira and bread and cheese are served. Do please call the shop to book a place.
