Bill Esterson takes part in 'Books are my bag' day

Pritchards_authorresize.jpgBill Esterson MP met with local author Rita Cheminais on Saturday 8th October in Pritchards Book store in Crosby Village to celebrate Bookshop Day at the independent shop in Crosby. The day is designed to raise awareness of the role bookshops play in our communities, with Pritchards inviting a shop regular to sign her new book for customers on the day. 

Rita has previously published academic books, with this being her first venture into fiction. The novel Twelve Thrilling Tales is a collection of original short stories exploring the darker side of modern life.


The Labour MP said “Pritchards is a wonderful book shop, which we are very lucky to have. Bookshops are still the most common way people discover new books, making them an important contribution to our towns and villages and our economy as a whole. Pritchards have been through trying times and yet through good service, local spirit and the hard work of the management they are going from strength to strength. I am so proud to have a popular and wonderful independently ran store in my constituency, which can support budding authors in such an effective way. I’ve brought a copy of Rita’s short story compilation and look forward to giving it a read.”
