To mark the era covered by the books, we chose an 80s and 90s Manchester theme. We had a quiz based on major events in Manchester during the 80s and 90s as well as a bit of Manchester themed trivia.
Goody bags went to those who answered 50% or more of the questions correctly although we were a bit generous with our marking.
It was lovely to hear everybody getting all nostalgic about the era as they rattled their brains to remember when particular events took place while music from the 80s and 90s played in the background.
For anyone who was struggling with the answers, we posted up some news articles and other information relating to 80s and 90s Manchester.
I roped in the family to help including my two children and my brother, Barry.
We continued our celebrations in the bar, which is only two doors down from the bookshop. Here I am sampling some of the beer with my lovely brother, Barry. My daughter also took a video with my son providing the voice-over. You can view it on my Facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/DMPublisher.
