It will come as no surprise that the United Benefice of Holland Park has many talented people in its congregations at St George’s and St John the Baptist. We have writers, poets, musicians and artists as well as those who contribute to the commonweal in other ways. Everyone’s contribution here is valued.
Recently a number of them have published books, poetry or articles which might be of wider interest to you, your friends and relations. Book launches haven’t really happened, and so, while you might be aware of some of these, it’s possible you’ve missed out on what is available.
This newsletter brings together details of some of these – apologies if there are any omissions.
It may be that you’re looking for something to read during this current lockdown, or perhaps thinking of Christmas presents. Some publications are available direct from the church, others from local or on-line booksellers, and some direct from the publishers. Except where by donation as noted, the Benefice does not receive any commission from the authors.
Amazon is, of course, many people’s first stop for buying books. You might like to know that a new consortium of independent bookstores has recently launched: https://uk.bookshop.org/
The publications here are in roughly alphabetical order of the author – there seemed to be no other fair way to let you know what is on offer.
Enjoy these publications, and marvel at their talented writers.
