What a fantastic festival! The much anticipated Chipping Norton Literary Festival exceeded all expectation and was another incredible occasion for the town and beyond.
Thursday saw a steady flow of creativity and awe-inspiring talent stream through the shop as a rich variety of authors joined us here in the shop and across Chipping Norton. We saw an enthusiastic group of children’s authors coming together for the Festival’s school’s day. I’m undecided as to the what the collective noun for authors should be but when you see children’s authors, like those who joined us, its hard to think of anything strictly formal like an index or a chapter of authors. When you meet such imaginative, engaging and enthusiastic authors you know as a bookseller that your job has just become that much easier; their passion for books, not just their own work, and their eloquent way with words has most definitely sold us on every single book! Schools across the county were joined by Stewart Ross, Adam Stower, Dave Shelton, Gill Lewis, Elen Caldecott, Steven Butler, A F Harold and John Dougherty.
After a flying start, Friday, Saturday and Sunday saw an astonishing array of exceptional events ranging from Lee Child in the Theatre as well as Richard and Judy later in the day, Shelia Hancock and Baroness Trumpington, Matt Haig in the Town Hall and debut novelists Renee Knight, Jason Hewitt and Paula Hawkins, and storytelling with Petr Horacek in the Library. The town was buzzing with literary excitement and here in the shop we were truly privileged to host the Green Room. If you missed out this year on all that the Festival had to offer then make sure you follow us throughout the year and join us next year. Here are some of our favourite moments from the weekend.
Healthy eating has become a vibrant, fun thing with cookbook after cookbook showing you the beauty of cooking the things that will make your body feel good inside and out. We’ve seen the Hemsley sisters reminding us how to eat well, Deliciously Ella reinventing the way we view food and Dale Pinnock showing us how to eat our way to better health. But it can still be a problem to get the right vitamins and minerals into our diet.
If you haven’t already discovered the joys of juicing you need to. More and more people are incorporating juices into this healthy lifestyle that we are seeing modelled. I know you may have a whole stack of cookbooks already this year but here’s one more to add; a perfectly sized, easy to use juicing book by Rosemary Ferguson. Categorised into six sections including Detox & Heal, Rest & De-Stress and Energize, Ferguson’s debut book is concise in its method and descriptions but incising and intriguing. There is a stunning freshness throughout the book, both pictorially and in its content, that for me, an owner of far too many cookbooks, cannot help but buy immediately. The brilliant thing, yet another to add to the list, is that no matter if you have a Nutribullet or a more simple juicer, her recipes are there to suit all.

One of the joys of being in such a wonderful independent bookshop is being able to welcome authors into the shop and we have the privilege of having a Spring Saturday morning with Rosemary Ferguson. Join us on Saturday 11th April from 10-11am for a book signing and juicing demos. Sample a variety of her delicious juices and be inspired whether be it for yourself or finally finding a way for your kids to get fruit and vegetables into their diet.
Order your copy of Juice by Rosemary Ferguson in store now and be sure to join us on 11th April.
