  1. Hello
    I would like to buy a few tickets for the Alexander McCall Smith event. Do I do that through your website?

    1. Hi Lara,
      You can either pop into the shop to pick some up or you can call and reserve some over the phone. The number is 01608 641033.Hope that helps!

  2. You continue to be very enterprising You have well and truly put Chipping Norton on the literary map, and your bookshops continues to be a delight to visit. I hope very much to go to Alexander McCall Smith’s talk, if not also to hear Sebastian Faulks speak.

    Thank you.

    Elizabeth Carter
