Events at The Bookshop
with Kasey Carlin
and Maggie the Wunderdog
Maggie the dog is a walking miracle.
With her boundless energy, inquisitive snout and huge smile, Instagram sensation Maggie is the most recognisable rescue dog online.
But her warm, playful nature masks a traumatic past. Maggie was shot 17 times and subjected to cruelty and torture, before being rescued from Lebanon and brought to live in the UK by a determined and loving young woman called Kasey.
As Maggie struggled to overcome her injuries, every day was a fight to rehabilitate her. But Kasey was convinced that what she had found in this little dog was someone just as determined to live and love as she was.
Join us at The Bookshop at 2pm for talk with Kasey Carlin about her incredible story with Maggie: a story of hope, unconditional love, and never giving up. Tickets for this event are £10. Booking is essential.

Fake News in WW2:
An Evening with
The gripping story of a propaganda campaign like no other: the
covert British operation to manipulate American public opinion and
bring the US into the Second World War.
When William Stephenson - "our man in New York" - arrived in the
United States towards the end of June 1940 with instructions from
the head of MI6 to 'organise' American public opinion, Britain was
on the verge of defeat. Surveys showed that just 14% of the US
population wanted to go to war against Nazi Germany.
But soon that began to change...
Those campaigning against America's entry into the war, such as
legendary aviator Charles Lindbergh, talked of a British-led plot to
drag the US into the conflict. They feared that the British were
somehow flooding the American media with 'fake news',
infiltrating pressure groups, rigging opinion polls and meddling in US politics. These claims were shocking and wild: they were also true. That truth is revealed here for the first time by bestselling author Henry Hemming...
Join us at The Bookshop at 7pm for talk with Henry Hemming about his 'revelatory and wholly fascinating work of history', Our Man in New York. Tickets for this event are £10. Booking is essential.
