Bookshop News Roundup: The much-later-than-planned Friday Edition

IT’S ANOTHER MIXED BAG of news in this much-later-than-planned roundup, which begins with some exciting events and developments in Birmingham, Huddersfield and Market Harborough, but unfortunately ends on two very sad notes: the forthcoming closure of Plymouth’s Christian Literature Centre (aka The Upper Room Bookshop) and the death of Ali Charlesworth, former manager of Scunthorpe’s … Continue reading
