March’s Book Club #CS

From our Church Street Emporium


1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier.

Liesel, a nine-year-old girl, is living with a foster family on Himmel Street. Her parents have been taken away to a concentration camp. Liesel steals books. This is her story and the story of the inhabitants of her street when the bombs begin to fall.


It’s a small story, about:

a girl

an accordionist

some fanatical Germans

a Jewish fist fighter

and quite a lot of thievery.


Now, the film’s just come out. However, in case you didn’t know, The Book Thief started life as a well…a book. A book in fact which got very good reviews…

“Extraordinary, resonant and relevant, beautiful and angry.” (Lisa Hilton Sunday Telegraph)

“A moving work which will make many eyes brim.” (Marianne Brace Independent on Sunday)

“Brilliant and hugely ambitious … the kind of book that could be life-changing” (New York Times Book Review)

Do you think it deserves them though?

Well, Church St’s Book Club is discussing The Book Thief on Thursday so join us on Thursday 27th March at Church St from 6pm for drink & cake offers as well as the customary lively conversation!

You can join the conversation online at the Urban Coffee Co. Book club Facebook page.



Book Launch at Church St

From our Church Street Emporium

Motherhood-event-pic (1)At Church St we’re used to fabulous events; Storytelling Salons, Spiritual Moots and well anything you can shake a stick at really. So it should come as no surprise that we have another great afternoon planned next Sunday. Between 3pm and 5pm  we are hosting the Birmingham launch of ‘The Emma Press Anthology of Motherhood‘, a wonderful new collection of poems about the expectations, joys and trials of motherhood.

As well as coffee cake & even a Bloody Mary, if it tickles y’fancy,  there will be readings from three fabulous poets from the book: RICHARD O’BRIEN, DEBORAH ALMA, and Birmingham’s own poetry superstar LIZ BERRY. And although books will be on sale at £10 each the event itself is free.

You can read more about the book here And we really hope to see you there!

DEBORAH ALMA has an MA in Creative Writing, teaches Writing Poetry at Worcester University and uses poetry to assist communication with people with dementia. Last year she was Writer in Residence for the Arvon Foundation at The Hurst and for the NHS Mental Health and Wellbeing Conference 2013. She is also the Emergency Poet.

LIZ BERRY was born in the Black Country and now lives in Birmingham. She received an Eric Gregory Award in 2009 and her pamphlet The Patron Saint of School Girls was published by tall-lighthouse in 2010. She is the assistant poetry editor at Ambit magazine. Her debut collection will be published by Chatto & Windus in Summer 2014.

RICHARD O’BRIEN’s first pamphlet, your own devices, appeared in 2009 on tall-lighthouse press and his second, The Emmores, has just been published by the Emma Press. His work has featured in Poetry London, the Erotic Review and The Salt Book of Younger Poets. His blog, The Scallop-Shell, is dedicated to the close reading of contemporary poetry.
