The Bookshop at Orell Fussli is gearing up for a month full of thrills and chills this October. Switzerland’s biggest English-language bookshop in central Zurich presents some exciting events and releases over the next few weeks.

As Halloween approaches, you will be able to buy a range of themed American and English snacks, goodies and spooky party decorations from The Bookshop’s dedicated Halloween section.

Bridget Jones fans will be gearing up for the latest instalment of Helen Fielding’s bestselling series – Bridget Jones’s Baby. The new novel will be released on October 11 and is available in The Bookshop from then. And, really, where else would you go to purchase this classic? The new Bridget Jones’s Baby film starring Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth is in Swiss cinemas from 20 October (German-speaking side), 5 October (Romandie) and 22 October (Ticino).

Finally, to food. As part of October’s Zurich-wide book festival, Zurich Liest, The Bookshop will be hosting an Orell Füssli food tasting afternoon featuring dishes from some of its most popular cookery books. No need to buy tickets, just rock up on Friday October 28 from 3pm.
