Events and Book Groups

Here at Cogito our author events are chosen from the books we've read and admired and which we feel reflect both our own and our customers' literary passions and interests. These stimulating and enjoyable talks are tailored to each author and book with many events taking place in the intimate ambience of the bookshop as well as at larger venues in Hexham.

We run three monthly book groups, one for adults who enjoy discussing fiction, one for fellow crime readers and one for children aged 10+. There's no need to book a place, just read that month's chosen title and come along to the bookshop. All groups are welcoming, fun and generate interesting discussions.

We love sharing the excitement of books with even the youngest in our community. For pre-schoolers, we host weekly storytelling, with readings from hand-picked children’s books every Thursday at 2.15pm - perfect timing for the school run! It's free and informal, so come in, curl up, and enjoy some great stories.

Here's what's coming up soon...
