We're OPEN Sunday 31 July: Harry Potter launch party at midday!

23 July 2016



IMPORTANT UPDATE: PARTY RESCHEDULED!

We've rescheduled our Harry Potter release party for Sunday 31st July! We'll be open all day from 10.00 to 18.30, and it's also the last day of our sales, so you'll find bargains all over the shop.

At around midday, with the shop transformed into a Potterish wonderland, the fun and games will begin. Enjoy various refreshments, meet your fellow Potter fans (staff and customers alike) and take part in games and quizzes. Dressing up is not obligatory, but everyone who does will get an extra surprise!

We're sad to have to reschedule, and please accept our apologies for having to change your plans at short notice. But we're going to make sure the party on Sunday will be just as fun. You can join the event on Facebook if you like - and do share it with your friends!

Pre-order your copy of the book now - just email, phone or comment here - and you'll get it at our special pre-order price of €24,99. Just call us or send a quick email to info@sterlingbooks.be to reserve one.

Warner Bros. Entertainment and J.K. Rowling are not responsible for this event but, subject to conditions, they have kindly granted us permission to use the Harry Potter trade mark and other materials.

Win: tickets to the premiere (and other showings) of High-Rise!

24 June 2016



UPDATE: All the tickets are now gone; congratulations to all the winners!

Attention! We have five pairs of tickets to give away to the Antwerp Vertiginous High-Rise Avant-Première! Stay calm, because it'll all become clear.

The premiere of the eagerly-awaited, Hiddleston-starring adaptation of Ballard's dystopian novel is sponsored by VERTIGO, START IT @ KBC and Imagine Film Distribution, and takes place at Antwerp's fabulous KBC Tower on Monday 4th July. The guests will be welcomed at 19.15, and the showing is followed by the chance to visit the top floor to enjoy the splendid view, and - at your discretion - reflect on man's inhumanity to man.

And because not all of you can make it to Antwerp that evening, guess what? We also have 5 pairs of tickets valid in all cinemas which show the film, any day except weekends and national holidays, until the 2nd of August.

Just email info@sterlingbooks.be with the subject line "High-Rise competition" - letting us know whether you'd prefer the premiere or the general tickets - and we'll announce the winners on Monday. Good luck!

€110 per person


SEE ON FACEBOOK


Very exciting news today: we'll be welcoming the acclaimed writing tutors at The Reader Berlin to host 'Kickstart Your Writing' on the 14th and 15th of May!

"If you’re struggling with getting words down onto the page, stuck with a project, or just can’t seem to make the time for writing, come along for a weekend bootcamp that promises to get you and your work on track. Suitable for new writers or/and more experienced writers who want to reinvigorate their writing practice, the course will cover establishing a writing routine, with exercises to kickstart the imagination, alongside tuition on characterisation and dialogue, followed by a class on plot and structure, guidance on editing, and a brief overview of how to begin finding publishers for your work."

The course takes place in the gallery just over the road (aka the entrance of Old Sterling). We'll be popping over with plenty of complimentary coffee, tea and soft drinks.

To book your ticket, you'll need to email hello@thereaderberlin.com (places are limited, so sign up as soon as you can to avoid disappointment) but you can indicate your interest, and share it with any friends who might be interested, on our Facebook event page!
