Tonight: Night of Crime in Nelson

If you're anywhere near Nelson (my hometown, incidentally), tonight, make sure you head along to Page & Blackmore bookstore in Trafalgar Street. The award-winning independent bookseller is hosting a "Night of Crime" at 5.30pm tonight.

Here's the official blurb:
Come in and join us for an evening of crime shenanigans.
Play “Who is the Corpse?” to go into the draw for a crime prize pack.
And find out what's hot in crime and the P&B all-time favourites.
It sounds like a fun night, and Stella and her team at Page & Blackmore do a fantastic job. The store has won the national Independent Bookshop of the Year title in 2010, as well as twice winning South Island Bookshop of the Year. It's one of my favourite stores of any kind to browse and shop in whenever I'm back home visiting friends and family. So if you are anywhere nearby, make sure you head along to 'Night of Crime' tonight - and then send me a message and let me know what it was like and how it went!


  1. Oh, Craig, this sounds like a great event! I hope it goes well - wish I could attend.

  2. Sounds like a lot of fun! I wish a bookstore anywhere near me on the East Coast of the United States would host an event like this.
