Panel discussion ”The Power of Good Bookshops”

UPPSALA | Wednesday 13 September at 19:00. Free, but ticketed.

Do we need bookshops in the twenty-first century? If so, what makes a good one? In the age of one-click shopping, why are bookshops – and how do they become – essential places of discovery, refuge, and fulfillment that enrich the communities that are lucky enough to have them.

Sign up & join this panel discussion, for trade folk as well as bookshop lovers and customers.

Special guest is Jeff Deutsch, this year's Adam Helms Lecturer at Uppsala University (lecture on Tuesday 12 Sept).

Sign up & join the panel discussion on the role of the physical bookshop in contemporary society with Jeff Deutsch, Mats Ahlström (former president of the Swedish Booksellers Association), and Jan Smedh (co-founder of The English Bookshop). The discussion is in English.

The event is free, but ticketed – book your ticket today!

Music in the bookshop – Joules the Fox

Music in the bookshop with Joules the Fox

UPPSALA | Sunday 19 Feb at 17.15. Free.

Some years ago, a fox walked into a bookshop – brought song-shaped stories and sang for us!

On Sunday 19th of February she is back in the shop with her new record If Time Is in tow.

Joules the Fox is a singer, songwriter, producer but above all: a wanderer. These last years, she roamed through various countries and crossed continents playing over 200 stages, ships and shops, writing many a song and singing, ah well, all the time.

Always accompanied by Guitar, Harmonizer and Looper, this one-fox-band will take you to places she has been to and been creating – some real, some imaginary.

UPPSALA Sunday 19th February after hours at about 17:15
Free, bring a friend. Voluntary contributions to the artist (bring cash for the passing hat).
