Waterstones

Waterstones Dorchester gives a warm welcome to all who love books and beautiful things.

Inside their shop you will walk through rooms to inspire your reading choice and your practical needs. Downstairs you'll find the very latest and bestselling Fiction and Crime, and there is also a wonderful array of Gifts and Stationery for you to choose from. At the downstairs counter you can pick up or place book orders. Graphic Novels and Science Fiction will lead you to great Teen Fiction.

A warm and lively Children's section is the home of books they will love all our lives, as well as being a space for fun and creative events, with regular Story Times and Book Clubs.

Upstairs they have a world of Travel, History, Art and Cookery as well as Music, Biography, Religion and Health. It’s also a calm and quiet place to relax and choose Science or Politics books. Whatever your need, their very knowledgeable booksellers are always here to help.

I very much enjoyed giving my talk and meeting you and all your colleagues. I can think of no way you could have been more accommodating.

William and I had a very interesting and often hilarious time putting (our presentation) together – fortunately we both wanted to be thoroughly prepared, so we refined and refined… we enjoyed ourselves, aided and abetted by the helpfulness of you and yours behind the scenes, the warmth of the audience, and the pleasantness of the setting. Speaking at your festival was an altogether happy experience. I only wish I had managed to organise listening to many of the other talks, which I really wanted to do… Many congratulations to you and all your team, and all wishes for Festival no. 3!

I thoroughly enjoyed all six events I attended and would have done many more if my time had allowed. Congratulations to all the people involved for a very well organised event. I am most certainly looking forward to next year's events calendar- the dates are already in my diary.
