Give the gift of READING.

The (truly) Independent Bookshop.

The basement of 17 South William Street, Dublin.

Thomas Morris writes:

A group of Independent Dublin publishers have opened a pop-up bookshop on South William Street, from now until Christmas.

The publishers include Columba Press, Irish Academic Press, Liberties Press, The Lilliput Press, Little Island, New Island, The Salvage Press, The Stinging Fly, Swan River Press, and many other magazines and journals.

Staff from the publishers are manning the shop, and all the books are ones that were published by the above. (I work for Stinging Fly). It’s a rare thing to have so many publishers coming together like this. And it’s a truly independent venture.

We’ll be having an official opening party TODAY (Thursday) from 6:30pm, and there’ll be mulled wine, chocolate treats, and many a special offer. Everyone is welcome.

The Independent Bookshop :11am to 7pm (8pm on Thursdays) until December 23
