For over 25 years the Public House Bookshop served Brighton (and beyond) as an independent cultural emporium and book-take-away. It inspired Ginsberg to write poems about it, neo-Nazis to firebomb it, citizens to defend it, and musicians and performers to play in it. 

Environments like the Public House – fired with passion, creativity, and pleasure in people and in the power of words – are extremely rare. Come and share in a celebration of that special time and place presented by the shop’s founder, Richard Cupidi.
