David’s Bookshop in Letchworth will welcome two guest authors this week.

First up tonight is Sunday Times bestselling author Sally Magnusson talking about her debut novel, The Sealwoman’s Gift.

The book is based on the true story of a pirate raid in which a pastor, his wife and their children were abducted into slavery.

Then on Friday, DJ and journalist Dave Haslam will visit the Eastcheap store to sign and discuss his book, Sonic Youth Slept on My Floor.

Famous for his sets at the Hacienda nightclub in Manchester, Haslam inspired artists such as The Stone Roses’ lead singer Ian Brown, while stories in the book include The Smiths frontman Morrissey coming for tea.
