The Women’s Bookshop celebrated 25 years of business, with a big party at Ponsonby Central, on Monday evening. With their innovative events such as the Ladies Litera-tea, and plenty of Booksellers’ Industry Awards for their great service and knowledgeable staff, these guys have certainly been an important part of the book world in Auckland for the past 25 years.
If you haven’t yet been in to congratulate them, pop in between 6pm and 8pm on Thursday and Friday nights all April, and get a free glass of wine so you can help them celebrate!
