At Gay's The Word, we hold a wide range of book events from launches and readings to panel discussions and signings. In the pre-Covid-19 world, we'd gather to celebrate, raise a glass, and send people home with a gorgeous new book (or five). Currently, we are able to offer the occasional online event, books available for pre-order, and signed copies of books from our online shop.

For enquires about holding an event with Gay's The Word, please see the FAQs on our contact page. You can also sign up to our mailing list or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
