One week only: books & Baileys at a pop-up bar in London

Baileys pop up barNext Monday May 16th the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction will open its first-ever pop-up bar in the basement at Waterstones’ new Tottenham Court Road store to celebrate  the 2016 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction shortlist.

Book lovers will have the chance to celebrate the six  novels that make up the 2016 shortlist while enjoying a Baileys.

The 2016 shortlist is:
Ruby by Cynthia Bond
The Green Road by Anne Enright
The Glorious Heresies by Lisa McInerney
The Portable Veblen by Elizabeth McKenzie
The Improbability of Love by Hannah Rothschild
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara.

Lots of of things are planned for the week. For example, on Wednesday and Friday lunchtimes there will be an opportunity to hear each of the six novels brought to life in dramatic readings performed by actors.

An added bonus is that if you buy one of the six shortlisted books you are entitled to either a free Flat White martini or a Baileys coffee.

(A flat white  martini?! I feel so provincial: is that possible? I suspect Baileys is one of the ingredients which in my book – sorry – is a very good thing.)
