Hello from Mog and Pauline

Hello to everyone,

to introduce ourselves, we are the proud and very enthusiastic new owners of Warwick Books. I’m Mog and my background is in theatre design and youth work, and having been Warwick born and bred, I then spent some years working in Italy and France before being delighted to get the opportunity to return to Warwick where my parents Philip and Claire Harris still live and will be known to many of you. I’m Pauline and my background is having studied economics and foreign languages, as director of a youth charity. Born in Metz in North-East France, I am fluent in English, French and Italian, and also like dabbling in Polish and Russian. I am already enjoying discovering Warwick’s hidden treasures. We are both great readers and  have lots of experience in organising events and are looking forward to meeting you all. Do pop in and introduce yourselves, and we will be really grateful for your continued support.

To start the ball rolling, in May two extra special events. First, on May 13th Dr Elizabeth Goldring will be at Lord Leycester’s Hospital to talk about her new book on the Elizabethan Robert Dudley Lord Leycester and his magnificent art collection. What a privilege that we are able to hold this talk in the medieval hall which he acquired for his own charitable uses in 1571.

We don’t get many lead singers along for a talk, but that’s what we have on May 14th when Liam Brown of the Freelance Mourners will be telling us all about his powerful and gritty thriller ‘Real Monsters’ which gets to grip with what war is really like…for both sides. Exciting event!

Friday 5th June sees Matthew Engel, author of our bestselling book at Christmas ‘Engel’s England’, come and tell us what he found when he set out to visit every county in England and try to distil its special character.  A talk full of poignancy, wit, wonderful fascination and the unexpected.

And Matthew Engel fills our slot in a terrific Warwick Words Xtra ongoing series of events running from February to June which also includes S J Watson, Emma Bridgwater, Dan Jones, James Runcie and others…..do pick up a program in our shop.


As usual we hope you enjoyWarwick Books StoreThis Months Reviews. ….and we hope you will consider going to some of the terrific events.
