This is to let you know about an unusual event being held at the end of half term week at The Hayling Island Bookshop who will be familiar to some staff and parents for their work with the School Library Service on literary events.

The Hayling Island Bookshop are hosting a book signing with Sir David Attenborough when he visits them on Friday November 2nd  at 1pm. He will be signing copies of his new book Drawn from Paradise along with his co author Errol Fuller.

This beautiful new book is a journey through the cultural history of the birds of paradise, one of the most exquisite and extravagant, colourful and intriguing families of birds.

Owner of The Hayling Island Bookshop Marie Telford says “This is a wonderful opportunity for a small bookshop like ours. David Attenborough is a broadcasting legend; there can be few people in the country of all ages that have not seen his wonderful TV programmes.

I hope as many people as possible will come and join us to meet Sir David and Errol Fuller as they sign and dedicate copies of the book. The book is gorgeous and will appeal to general nature lovers, art enthusiasts and experienced ornithologists who will delight in this journey of discovery of the world's most beautiful and mysterious birds. A signed copy of this unique book will make a wonderful Christmas present and meeting Sir David will be a great pleasure.”

Entry to the book signing is strictly by ticket only, bookable in advance from The Hayling Island Bookshop.

Each ticket includes the book, which is priced at £30, for signing by David and Errol.

Tickets are on sale now on 02392 466 620.
