Here at Mr B’s we run literary events with a difference. Each of our events features one of our favourite authors who we’ve invited along because we think that they’re fantastic and we think that you will too. Our BOOK LOVERS UNITE events incorporate and author interview with food and wine and sometimes music from our Bookshop Band and take place in our cozy bibliotherapy room at the shop. At our Literary Legend events we welcome big name authors to external venues across the city. Here’s what we have planned… 

   

2017 Events Coming Soon!


 
January
28th

Mr B's Emporium and The Phoenix comic proudly present special guests
THE ETHERINGTON BROTHERS
Saturday 28th January
11am - 1pm at Mr B’s


To celebrate The Phoenix comic's 5th birthday and the launch of the stunning new adventure graphic novel "Long Gone Don and the Terror-Cotta Army", we are delighted to welcome to Mr B's the brilliant Etherington Brothers.

Robin and Lorenzo Etherington are the creators of "Monkey Nuts", contributors to Star Wars, Transformers, the Dandy and Wallace and Gromit, plus Mr B's favourites "Von Doogan and the Great Air Race" and "Von Doogan and the Curse of the Golden Monkey". Their newest creation is the follow up to the hilarious "Long Gone Don" and sees Don Skelton return after drowning face down in a bowl of oxtail soup. This time Don's back in the surreal afterlife of Broilerdoom with new problems, new friends and a brand new enemy.


On Saturday the 28th January, between 11am-1pm, the Etheringtons will be hanging out at Mr B's signing books, making sketches and maybe stepping behind the counter to recommend your next great illustrated read!  

We'll also be giving away 300 free Phoenix comics and spreading the word about the Drawn to Reading project that celebrates illustrated books and graphic novels for children of all ages throughout the year with events around the country and online activity supported by illustrators and authors. Further campaign details will be shortly announced, and can be followed on social media using the #DrawnToReading tag.

All are welcome and there's no need to book, just pop in on Saturday the 28th and join us for a comic book bonanza!
