Also, for anyone having trouble deciding quite which book to buy as a present, a reminder that we do sell our own Heron Vouchers in a range of denominations… There are also a few of Alice Ormiston’s lovely cards available in the shop too.

Heron Books would also like to thank all our customers for a fantastic first three months: they have flown by. We hope you’ve all enjoyed reading your purchases and are looking forward to coming back for more. A reminder of our plans for 2023:

Wednesday 25th January: Fiction Book Group (Trumpet by Jackie Kay)
Monday 30th January: Non-fiction Book Group (Free by Lea Ypi)
TBC: talk by Franny Moyle on J. M. W. Turner and his connections to Bristol

If you are interested in finding out more about any of the above, please send us an email.

Finally for 2022, we are very pleased to present our Christmas crossword: clues are cryptic and book-themed, including some classics, some of this year’s hits and many (though not all) of the delightful authors who’ve shown us support since opening.

You can tweet us @heron_books if you get stuck, and we look forward to hearing how you got on in the New Year.
