Future Events

Hosting a regular programme of author talks, book signings and themed events is an important and exciting part of what we do. We work hard to bring an exciting mix of bestselling authors and some of the best new writers to Oswestry. Booka prides itself on creating an ‘event experience’ for both audience and author. As well as the bookshop we make use of a number of outside venues for our larger events.

In addition to our own events, we also provide bookselling services to support the appearance of authors and celebrities at a number of Festivals and Shows.
