Diary of a second-hand bookseller

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:31 pm on 29 August 2018

Sixteen years ago Shaun Bythell took over the The Bookshop in Wigtown in western Scotland. It's one of the largest second-hand book shops in Scotland and has over 100,000 books on its shelves.

His book, Diary of a Bookseller, tells the story of a year working in the bookshop and has captured the imaginations of readers all over the world. 

He's travelling around New Zealand talking about his bookshop and book in big cities and small towns.
