Housmans eventsWe have an opening at Housmans Bookshop for the role of Evening Events Host.

2. Peace House 60th Anniversary: your memories and anecdotes wanted!

HousmansThis November, Peace House, the building in which Housmans occupies the ground floor and basement, celebrates 60 years* since it was taken over by Peace News Trustees, for the purpose of providing a home for peace movement organisations and fellow travellers. We will be celebrating the anniversary in a variety of ways (watch this space!), but in the meantime we would welcome your memories and anecdotes of the building, and of Housmans in particular, to help form part of a history project that is happening in relation to the anniversary.

We’d encourage you to write whatever comes to mind, long or short, but some possible leading questions might be:  What drew you to Housmans initially? Any particular memories of the shop from the past? What ideas has Housmans opened you up to? That kind of thing. Please email your thoughts and memories to nik@housmans.com. Thank you!

*Housmans is older, established in 1945, but we’ve been in this building since 1959.
