Staff reads - a fascinating essay from Sam Mills on the rise of the chauvo feminist (men who are publicly feminist but whose private behaviour/beliefs is not). Part discussion, part personal experience this essay leaves the reader with lots to think about.

Here's a flashback to this time last year when we were hosting one of our final events before lockdown with @grandadwheels. We had a great time meeting Brian and his lovely family. You'll be able to by his books from us again as soon as we reopen. #halifax #localauthor
A few pics of some of our favourite local authors , publishers and friends doing their stuff in our wonderful shop. We miss you all .
With all the poetry love on our timeline we thought we'd share a picture of our poetry shelves. This is one of our most popular sections in the shop, and we have had some wonderful poetry events. We can't wait to get back to hosting poetry readings again!.⠀
You can see our shop from here! Fantastic views over Halifax yesterday from Beacon Hill. This was the site of the cage where executed prisoners were hung in chains above the town, a grisly scene described in the first chapter of The Gallows Pole by @benmyers76
