The Mistresses of Cliveden
Good morning, folks! This evening - Monday 14th March - I'm chairing an event at the V&A with Natalie Livingstone, author of the fantastic The Mistresses of Cliveden - a book centred around history, scandal, politics and feminism. It promises to be a fun evening and if you're in London you can book tickets here. Regardless, I'd definitely recommend reading her book; I'll be talking about it in more detail in a future video.
Jen Campbell is the author of the Sunday Times bestselling 'Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops' series, and 'The Bookshop Book.' She's also an award-winning poet and short story writer. Her poetry collection 'The Hungry Ghost Festival' is published by The Rialto and she is currently writing a short story collection. She runs a Booktube channel over at youtube.com/jenvcampbell

From the oldest bookshop in the world, to the smallest you could imagine, The Bookshop Book examines the history of books, talks to authors about their favourite places, and looks at over three hundred weirdly wonderful bookshops across six continents (sadly, we’ve yet to build a bookshop down in the South Pole). The Bookshop Book is a love letter to bookshops all around the world.
