Opened in 2008, Pages of Hackney is a small award-winning bookshop on the Lower Clapton Road. We sell an eclectic mix of books in the areas of literary fiction, politics, feminism, essays and life writing as well as philosophy, psychology, nature writing, music and children’s books. Our priority is to be a friendly, welcoming community bookshop that feels accessible and inclusive: we want each customer to feel that the bookshop is for them, and we do our best to give our customers individually as much time and thought as we can. It’s also important to us to support the issues and authors we believe in, and to give a platform to marginalised voices in publishing.
Since 2015, our basement has been home to Fields Books and features an incredible selection of second-hand books carefully curated by Patrick Mills, who specialises in crime fiction in addition to a wide range of fiction and non-fiction areas.
We offer a diverse programme of author events in the shop and as well as a monthly book group. We are also the official bookseller for public events at London School of Economics as well as various events across London. If you’d like us to sell books at your event, why don’t you drop us a line?
