CURRENT SITUATION UPDATE: DRAKE – The Bookshop has tons & tons of books! Including special editions and signed copies!

The publishers have all crammed their publishing schedules into the end of the year so there is an enormous choice for everyone at the minute.

Call in and check out the titles, new and old, safe in the knowledge that the distancing and safety measures are still in place to ensure your safety. (sanitiser and masks at the door and other sanitiser stations round the shop) and will be limiting the shop to 4 people at a time or 2 families. If you can continue to use the website as an initial browsing point to help keep handling books to a bit of a minimum and so the queue outside (we will have a queue?) as short as possible that would be great. Things will almost certainly change on a daily basis, but one thing that will remain is our commitment to you to put awesome books in your hands!

#Lockdown Pharmacy is still open for business.

not just great books, great coffee as well.

Taken: 19th June 2018 Drake the Bookshop is hosting a boat trip and book signing on the Teesside Princess with the author Philip Pullman. The boat will travel from Stockton to Preston Park, where Philip will be signing books at the John Walker chemist shop before making the return journey back to Stockton. Ideally we would like photos of the event on the boat and of Philip Pullman at the chemist shop. Photographer/Byline Dave Charnley Photography www.davecharnleyphotography.com
