Phlox Books, East London, lives by the mantra 'Books.Booze.Coffee'. They revel in finding the most beautiful, unusual and darn-right irresistible books for both adults and children, all perfectly presented by their knowledgeable booksellers. Pair that with Hackney-based Allpress coffees, locally sourced craft beers, wines and some sticky baked goods in their café, it's the perfect place to pass a few hours. Situated in the heart of a pedestrianised street of strictly independent businesses, their beautiful Victorian shop is a hub of the community, always alive with locals, kids and usually a good sprinkling of dogs!
On the evening of the 6th of February, they will be joined by legendary lifestyle journalist and documentary maker Kate Spicer who will be discussing her book 'Lost Dog' along with life, getting older and all things dog.
In a career spanning 25 years, Kate has become a familiar face on our TV screens, is a frequent contributor to heavyweights such as Vogue, The Times and Noble Rot. However, adopting, and subsequently losing a dog named Wolfy, brought about some heavy thinking about life, loving and the myths of modern womanhood.
The Sunday Times bestselling memoir 'Lost Dog' is a darkly humour memoir that we can all find a piece of ourselves in, so join Kate for an entertain night of laughs, awkward reminiscences and dog-scapades!
