Books for everyone to buy and read
My name is Francis Sheppard. Saturday Books was started in 2014.
Ongoing work has been the restoration of the interior of a mid-nineteenth-century building, originally three town houses, part of which is now warehouse and offices.
Saturday Books has space at ground level, which houses Literature, popular philosophy and the arcane - paperback reading to be found immediately on the second floor. Up there, there is a Coffee Room, where serious browsers may want to take a pile of books for an afternoon of reading.
Down the corridor are rooms full of Natural History, Maritime, Flight, Motor Transport, Railways, Canals, Travel, First and Second World Wars, European and Colonial History, Battles, Craft, Gardening and Cookery, then finally Poetry, Drama, Music, Religious Thought and Art.
Much of the trade is carried out online, but Saturday Books' purpose is to serve the West Midlands region. What is sold in the shop is heavily discounted against Amazon and Abebooks counterparts. A poetry scene flourishes on Saturday mornings monthly. Saturday Books wants to be at the heart of the local community!
Since March, we have been developing an Art Gallery, so hence the change of name. Under the leadership of Claire Tedstone, a venue has arisen in the building where local artists can display work. it is the most beautiful area of the great expanses of our top floor. It is most often alive with the hum of creativity.
So make the journey over. The building is cold so you need layers, even unseasonally, but you will be given a warm welcome. Come home with an armful of books, and tell your friends that literary life does still go on in the locality.
