My Life In Books with Jenny Eclair, Lucy Porter, Sara Pascoe and guests, hosted by BBC Radio 4's Viv Groskop.

Saturday 11th October 2014 5pm - 6pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

Jenny EclairGrumpy Old Woman Jenny Éclair joins Channel 4's Stand Up for the Week Sara Pascoe (shortlisted for this year's Edinburgh Comedy Award) and stand-up and TV regular Lucy Porter in conversation with BBC Radio 4's Viv Groskop (Front Row, Loose Ends) to talk about their favourite books, the moment in life that reading saved them -- and the books they really could have done without.

BOOKS ARE MY BAG is a nationwide campaign to celebrate bookshops. This collaboration between publishers, bookshops and authors is the biggest ever promotion of bookshops. For many people bookshops conjure fond images of book readings, in-store cafes and delight at the discovery of a new author. In fact, 56% of all book buying decisions are made by consumers in a bookshop and high street bookshops (both chains and independents) still account for almost 40% of books bought by consumers. Yet, many high street bookshops are under threat.
