Bookshop Bookclub Goes Online

The Bookshop Bookclub is Now Online

With the bricks and mortar shop temporarily closed, we’ve been missing your lively book conversations and hearing your thoughts on the latest reads. So we’ve moved the Bookshop Bookclub online!

Become a member of Sevenoaks Bookshop Bookclub on Facebook to chat books. We’ll also be hosting regular scheduled discussions.

Our first ever live discussion will be Tuesday 7 April at 8pm, when we’ll be talking about Bernadine Evaristo’s Girl, Woman, Other. We hope you can join us!

Wishing all of you the very best whilst we’re in lockdown. Keep on reading!

Square Haunting

Square Haunting
by Francesca Wade

Five exceptional women, one London square – a fascinating group biography.

Mecklenburgh Square, on the radical fringes of interwar Bloomsbury, was home to activists, experimenters and revolutionaries; among them were the modernist poet H. D., detective novelist Dorothy L. Sayers, classicist Jane Harrison, economic historian Eileen Power, and writer and publisher Virginia Woolf. They each alighted there seeking a space where they could live, love and, above all, work independently. Francesca’s book biography explores how these trailblazing women pushed the boundaries of literature, scholarship, and social norms, forging careers that would have been impossible without these rooms of their own.

‘I like this London life . . . the street-sauntering and square-haunting.’  – Virginia Woolf, diary, 1925
