We are thrilled to be teaming up with the brilliant Burley Fisher this Independent Bookshop Week. Burley Fisher were shortlisted for Independent Bookshop of the Year and made a name for themselves delivering books by bike during lockdown last year. Their fierce championing of LGBTQ+ authors and those from underrepresented backgrounds make them the perfect partner for Serpent’s Tail.
PRIDE POP-UP BOOK STALL
Our activity begins with a pop-up book stall in celebration of Pride Month, along with the excellent Cipher Press, this Saturday at Broadway Market in East London. There will be books, bunting, bookmarks, treats from Meringue Girls and plenty of coffee nearby, so do come down and say hi!
IN-STORE AND ONLINE
Independent Bookshop Week begins on the 19th June. Look out a takeover on our instagram account, and pop in store for tote bags, bookmarks, and free coffee (while stocks last). Get 10% off a list of handpicked books – from Nella Larsen to Alice Albinia – in-store and on the BF website.
ISOLATION STATION – THE PODCAST
In a special episode of Burley Fisher’s podcast, Sam Fisher and So Mayer speak to Serpent’s Tail publisher Hannah Westland about radical and readable books, Torrey Peters and what it’s like to be head of an indie publisher.
CARMEN MARIA MACHADO IN CONVERSATION – ONLINE EVENT
You can join in the fun wherever you are with an amazing online event with the inimitable, Rathbones Prize-winning author of In the Dream House and Her Body and Other Parties, Carmen Maria Machado.
