Notting Hill teaches you stuff

This newly opened Notting Hill concern proudly proclaims itself a bookseller, coffeehouse, and school, with literature-lined walls of new and secondhand tomes surrounding antique furnishings, where guests are served teas, coffee, and housemade cakes. Educationally, they're holding frequent lectures that've so far included The Penguin Café's Arthur Jeffries' wine-aided symposium on the ukulele, and Emma Thompson on how "books are better than drugs", though the latter's required to make truth Stranger Than Fiction.
