About the event

The Story Museum is proud to present a brand new series of evening events featuring a host of favourite household names, exploring the books and stories that have stayed with them throughout their lives.

For many of us, the books that remain on our bookshelf often have their own stories to tell about the role they have played in our lives. This treasured collection often reflects the many parts to us, including our upbringing, our passions and our guilty pleasures. In this unique series of events, Nicolette Jones (Sunday Times children’s literary editor) discovers the books that sit on the shelves of some of Britain’s best-loved and celebrated personalities.

Explore the bookshelf of critically acclaimed actor, star of Drop the Dead Donkey and one of the UK’s leading antiquarian book dealers, Neil Pearson. Discover the books he loves, the books he would recommend and the books that have changed his life.
