Marsden Books Newsletter May 2014
This year, in addition to our regular book events we are planning evenings with a community focus.
The first of these will be an information evening on the work of the Hospice.
I am away overseas in June so please support all the wonderful staff here, who will be keeping Marsden Books humming along through the winter.
Remember there is always a comfortable chair and a friendly face if you need a browse and a book fix.
