Our community

At CCB our focus is investing in our community, so we provide a space for literary events, book launches and author visits as well as books for book groups, schools, and literary festivals.

Authors

We have been delighted to work with many Devon authors, including Nick Arnold of Horrible Science at our open day, and the late and much missed Mal Peet who did us the honour of officially opening the shop in 2013 and launching his last novel ‘The Murdstone Trilogy’ at our 2014 AGM.

It’s been fantastic working with children’s author Babette Cole who entertained children and adults alike at the launch of her mid-Devon tale ‘James Rabbit and the Giggleberries’ and also helped facilitate our first literacy workshop with local schoolchildren.

We have also had the pleasure to host events with performance poets Matt Harvey & Laurence Sail, cycling connoisseur William Fotheringham and many others including local self-published authors, poets and illustrators.

We are excited that the move to our new shop will provide us with the facilities to develop a tantalising event programme in the coming months!

Book Clubs, storytelling and more…

CCB is developing a programme of activities at the shop for adults and children including author events, holiday book-clubs, storytelling, reading & writing groups, quizzes & other literary delights.

We actively promote national literacy campaigns and book giveaways like World Book Day & World Book Night and aim to make books and reading accessible to all! Keep up to date though our website and Facebook page or by calling into the shop!
