Author Talk: Robin Ince talking about Bibliomaniac
Author Talk, 3.30pm at Red Lion Books, includes Author Talk with Robin Ince, signed, hardback edition of ‘Bibliomaniac’ and a welcome drink.
A unique, funny picture of Britain… A love letter to bookshops and the vagaries of public transport.’ Richard Osman
Why play to 12,000 people when you can play to 12? In Autumn 2021, Robin Ince’s stadium tour with Professor Brian Cox was postponed due to the pandemic. Rather than do nothing, he decided instead to go on a tour of over a hundred bookshops in the UK, from North to South, East to West ….which included Red Lion Books in Colchester.
Packed with witty anecdotes and tall tales, Bibliomaniac takes the reader on a journey across Britain as Robin explores his lifelong love of bookshops and books – and also tries to find out just why he can never have enough of them. It is the story of an addiction and a romance, and also of an occasional points failure just outside Oxenholme.
