Every month Daunt Books holds a range of interesting author events featuring the likes of William Boyd, Alexander McCall Smith and Jan Morris. Please get in touch if you would like to reserve a signed copy from any of these events.

  • William Skidelsky
    'Federer and Me - A Story of Obsession'

    Tuesday 23rd June at 7.00pm at Daunt Books Marylebone.

    With Wimbledon almost upon us, William Skidelsky will be here to tell us of his decade-long obsession with Roger Federer, "the greatest and most graceful tennis player of all time."
    Having been literary editor of the Observer and the New Statesman and written on tennis for The Economist amongst others (as well as playing county-standard tennis himself), he is well-qualified to explain what it is about Federer and his style that is so special. In doing so he explores the evolution of modern tennis and reveals much about his own past.
    This is indeed an ace of a book, thought-provoking, charming and funny by turns. William will be in conversation with author and lecturer, Laurence Scott, whose new book The Four-Dimensional Human has just been released

    After the huge success of This Boy, which told the story of his childhood, former Home Secretary Alan Johnson returns to discuss Please, Mister Postman and the next part of his extraordinary life. It covers his first marriage at eighteen through to its break-up in his mid thirties, as well as his Post Office job and first steps in trade unionism.
    "His book is a wonderful elegy to a time when nobody drank at home, and the fax machine was seen as a serious threat to our future." Independent

  • Antony Beevor
    'Ardennes 1944'

    Tuesday 30th June at 7.00pm at Daunt Books Marylebone.


    We are delighted to welcome back Antony Beevor to talk about Ardennes 1944, his vivid narrative of Hitler's ill-fated gamble to try and divide the western Allies that became known as the "Battle of the Bulge."

    As with his enormously successful Stalingrad, D-Day and Berlin, Beevor tells the story with clarity and pace whilst effortlessly weaving in the individual testimony of the participants.

  • Jane Green & Freya North
    in conversation

    Thursday 2nd July at 7.00pm at Burgh House, NW3.


    Daunt Books Hampstead are delighted to invite you to an evening with Jane Green and Freya North as they discuss their new novels Summer Secrets and The Turning Point. From causing trouble in French lessons to being bridesmaids at each others' weddings, these old friends are now both bestselling novelists praised for their honest accounts of the dramas of everyday life.

    With a journalistic insight and eye for a story, Jane Green handles "grime issues with a sure hand" and in Summer Secrets she turns her expertise to examining unresolved family tensions and secrets. Set against a stunning Nantucket backdrop, this is a tale of self discovery, revenge, love and new beginnings.

    Freya North's books have been described as "poignant", "clever" and "compulsively readable", and this year she brings us Turning Point: a story of chance, family and love across continents. With wit, charm and a mastery of words North highlights the struggles and sacrifices made for love.
    We look forward to an evening that promises a fascinating insight into the lives and minds of the two writers, as well as a joyful reunion of old friends. Back in their childhood surroundings the writers will explore their new novels, their influences and differing approaches to writing.

    Unfortunately this talk has been cancelled due to unforseen circumstances. If you have bought a ticket, please call us on 020 7794 8206

  • Jonathan Fenby
    'The History of Modern France'

    Thursday 9th July at 7.00pm at Daunt Books Marylebone.

    Jonathan Fenby is one of the most perceptive of all modern writers on France. Here he takes us on a compelling journey through the tumultuous two hundred years that followed the defeat at Waterloo. This was a period that saw France regain and lose an Empire, suffer further revolutions and further catastrophic military defeats, before her re-emergence as the would-be leader of the European project. At the same time France would experience enormous social change. Jonathan Fenby effortlessly weaves all these strands together into his trademark fluent and insightful narrative.

    Tickets are £8 and include a glass of wine, 20% off the speaker's books and 20% off supper on the night at Hardy's Brasserie and Wine Bar.

    Tickets may be purchased from our Marylebone shop in person, with credit/debit card by telephone 0207 224 2295 or here online.
