Shaun Bythell's book, Diary of a Bookseller, chronicles a year in the life of The Bookshop - the largest second-hand bookshop in Scotland. Situated in Wigtown, which is an official 'Booktown', it contains over 100,000 books, spread over a mile of shelving along twisting corridors. '

Called 'Warm, witty and laugh-out-loud funny' by Daily Mail, and a delightful, amusing daily diary that is just a pleasure to read,' by Lincoln Gould on The Reader, Diary of a Bookseller has sold in the UK and across the world in its tens of thousands. And now you have the opportunity to see him live in conversation, after his appearance at the 97th Booksellers NZ conference.

Bythell appears with Booksellers NZ, in association with WORD Christchurch and Pirate & Queen. He appears at The Loft in Featherston at 7pm on Monday 27 August, at Meow bar in Wellington from 8.30-9.30pm on Wednesday 29 August, and in Christchurch with WORD from 10-11am on Saturday 1 September.
