Welcome to the Big Green Bookshop Online
 
Friday February 26th. From 7.00pm
MUSIC QUIZ
Join Chris Salewicz for a Very Special “Dead Gods” evening. 
£5 a team - BUY TICKETS HERE
Please join us for a brilliant evening with author, music journalist and all round legend Chris Salewicz as we host a MUSIC QUIZ to coincide with Chris’ new book “Dead Gods”.
 
Robert Johnson. Brian Jones. Jimi Hendrix. Janis Joplin. Jim Morrison. Kurt Cobain. Amy Winehouse.
 They were inspirational, controversial, talismanic and innovative. They lead lives full of myth, scandal, sex, drugs and some of the most glorious music that has ever heard.
Though each of their lives were cut tragically short at the age of 27, they would all leave the world having changed it irrevocably. Chris Salewicz tells, in intimate detail, the stories behind these compelling figures. From Robert Johnson and his legendary deal with the devil, to Jimi Hendrix appearing like a psychedelic comet on the London scene, through to Amy Winehouse's blazing talent and her savage appetite for self-destruction.
 
The quiz will focus on each of the artists in the book and throughout the night Chris will be reading and discussing the book. 
 
Traditional quiz rules apply.
·         Maximum teams of 4 people (you can be a team of one if you like, of course).
·         Teams cost £5 (payment in advance HERE please).
·         Refreshments will be available, but feel free to bring your own.
 
The book will be available to purchase on the night and Chris will be happy to sign copies and answer any of your questions about these incredible artists.

Or you could subscribe to our Children’s Book Club
 
Our Children’s Book Club works in exactly the same way as our adult one and we’ve enlisted some expert help to make sure we provide the most appropriate books for children of all ages. We’ve joined up with “Books for Keeps” to help us choose book for our kid’s book package. Books for Keeps are the UK’s leading independent children’s book magazine, reviewing over 1,000 children’s books each year. This is what they wrote in their first issue back in 1980.
 
 
‘We have assumed that you, our readership, are busy people committed to encouraging the reading habit amongst your children, not only in school but at home or on holiday too. Because there is so much available and so much new material being published, it is impossible to keep abreast of everything all the time. The thinking behind Books for Keeps is based therefore on the belief that book ideas, book opinion, book information and book news should be easy to digest, stimulating to read, and simple to select.’

The Book Club is a perfect gift for any book lovers out there – no matter what age.
 
There are 3 sizes of package, three months, six months and twelve months. Prices start at just £25 for children and £30 for adults.

  Welcome to The Big Green Bookshop, the award winning bookshop based in Wood Green, North London. We’re situated just off the High Road, a couple of minutes walk from Turnpike Lane tube station, on Brampton Park Road (an oasis of calm in the metropolitan madness).

We stock a great and varied range of books, which we individually hand pick for our customers, as well as stocking a wide selection of cards, bookmarks and other essentials. If you can’t decide what to get (the choice is sometimes too much), we sell our own vouchers too.

We have book groups for adults and children, which is open to everyone, and we also hold a staggering number of author signings and events for all ages. From Maisy Mouse to burlesque dancers, music legends and literary superstars, you can keep up with all the shenanigans on the website, or by signing up for our newsletter, just over there ------>

If we don’t have the book you’re looking for we can usually get it in within 48 hours, and you can now order online too, and we offer free delivery in the UK for orders over £5. You’ll also find special offers, signed books and all manner of delights here, so it’s definitely worth checking back every so often.

If the book you want is no longer available, we have an Out of Print Booksearch Service, which is totally free.
Details can be found here.

There’s so much more to tell you, but we’ll let you have a look around for yourself. Have fun and come and say hello next time you’re in the area. There’s usually a pot of coffee on the go, and we have a very comfy sofa.
