Breaking News...Nick Thorpe at Mostly Books

Tomorrow (Tuesday Feb 2nd) - and at short notice - the BBC's Central Europe correspondent Nick Thorpe will be popping in to Mostly Books tomorrow at 11am to sign copies of his book "'89: The Unfinished Revolution". Now I know what you're thinking. BBC, recent radio connections - but no, Nick has family in Abingdon and is talking at a couple of the local schools, so we asked him to pop in and do an impromptu signing. Nick has witnessed first-hand some of the most tumultuous events of the past twenty-five years in eastern Europe: the Velvet Revolution in Prague; the bloody uprising in Romania; the bombing of Belgrade; and the economic crash of 2008. His book "'89: The Unfinished Revolution" is both an energising and important account of history in the making. If you are in Abingdon tomorrow, you would be most welcome to come along and meet Nick, who will be in the shop from 11am. If anyone would like a signed copy of "'89: The Unfinished Revolution", please do let us know, and we can reserve you a copy...
