Saturday 19 October, 10.30am until 6.00pm, Level G Festival Attractions 2013
Foyles will once again run the festival bookshop, stocking books by festival speakers and other books related to the Battle of Ideas 2012 themes. As last year the expanded bookshop will include shelves to browse, seating areas to read in and author signings (look out for details at the festival).
Foyles is a Charing Cross Road institution, but in the last few years the entire shop has been refitted. It still has an unparalleled range of books at its heart, with five floor of books on 56 specialist subjects, but also features an art gallery, a café, Ray’s Jazz shop and a flourishing programme of author events. Foyles also has shops at Royal Festival Hall, St Pancras International, and Westfield London.
This year Foyles 113-119 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0EB will host Battle Satellites entitled Science & society: brave new world or geek chic? on Tuesday 1 October and Whose streets: the limits to protest? on Tuesday 8 October, as well as Bookshop Barnie: Paul Morley on Friday 25 October.
