Welcome to Malvern Book Cooperative

Our new events programme is out.

Have look here to see the exciting programme. Highlights include:

Tuesday 4th July, 7.30pm
The Poetry of R. S. Thomas – Talk by Rev Nicholas Menon
While perhaps over shadowed by some of his compatriots, R. S. Thomas is arguably the most important Welsh poet of recent times. A man of renowned principles, he served as priest to rural communities in North Wales, shunning the literary limelight, for over sixty years, creating a body of poetry that almost earned him a Nobel Prize.

Friday 14th July, 7.30pm
A Boy Made of Blocks – by Keith Stuart.
Author Keith Stuart will be reading from and discussing his bestselling novel. A father searches for an understanding of and connection to his beautiful and surprising autistic son.

Thursday 20th July, 7.30pm
The Threat Level Remains Severe by Rowena Macdonald
Rowena will be reading from her latest novel. Aptly set in the House of Commons at the time of a general election, The Threat Level Remains Severe is a black comedy following Grace, Brett and Reuben as they become entangled in a love triangle attempting to bring some excitement to their unglamorous back office jobs in the corridors of power.

Would you like to be a member of the Malvern Book Cooperative?

One of the strengths of our business is the fact that it is wholly owned by our members. Every member has an equal say in the strategic decisions we make. They get to elect the management board and to stand for election if they wish.

The members we have at the moment are all people who bought shares when we set the shop up 5 years ago. They are great. They support us and act as the best marketing campaigners we could hope for. At this year’s AGM they decided that we ought to allow new members to join the Cooperative. Not to raise money – we don’t need additional finance at the moment – but to join our community and bring new ideas and energy.

Interested? Have a look at the details about membership here.
