What is the future for Writer’s Plot Readers Read Bookshop?
As an incorporated society we have applied for funding but we are at a stage where we need to have a discussion on the future of the the shop. If you want the shop to continue, want to support kiwi authors then have your say as a member of the Inc Soc.
An Application form can be downloaded and completed, then either scanned and emailed to us or posted. We are getting ready to hold a meeting to discuss the future… and you can be part of that. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
AGM will be held at the shop Saturday 15th July 2017 at 2pm – for those that are unable to get to the shop there will be a link sent out to those who request it (email us) for video conferencing.
Unable to commit to being a member? Then purchasing a book from us helps keep us going. We sell new books and we will order in books if you can’t find them. Prefer to use an e-reader/kindle – then search through the selection on our A Store.
Not a reader or have too many books already? Then how about a donation to help us keep going through Givealitte. Anyone at anytime can donate – any amount is appreciated.
Blind date with a book – details on our Competitions and Promotions page.
Important Note: UHCC road works – this is occurring right outside of the shop and in the lane behind from 10 July for 4 (or more) weeks and may cause the shop to be closed due to noise and amenities being unavailable . Check for facebook updates.
