The BA holds several Regional Bookshop Socials each year. The evenings start with drinks and networking in the bookshop followed by a publisher sponsored dinner. The evenings provide a great opportunity for regional booksellers to come together in a relaxed informal setting and have proved to be very popular.
The events are open to BA Members only and are FREE of charge to attend. The BA regional programme is sponsored by Bertrams.
All bookshop staff are welcome!
