'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.'
