Rated 0 out of 5
(be the first to review)

Author profits from the sale of the book will be donated to the following three charities and good causes in Nuneaton: a refuge for women and children affected by domestic violence, the Chilvers Coton Centre Trust (the Heritage Centre) and Nuneaton Memories (promoting heritage and social cohesion through slideshow talks (e.g. in care homes, assisted living accommodation, social groups) and the preservation/sharing of photographs and memories of Nuneaton.)

For those pre-ordering the book The Undoing of Polly Button via the Polly Button website before 1st August 2019, the book, priced at £15.99 will include a free bookmark and will be available to you a few weeks before its general release on 28 August 2019.

You have two options to choose from to obtain your copy.


Perhaps the most interesting option – and the one that most benefits the three local charities and good causes – is to collect the book from Zoe Holland, a keen supporter of the Polly Button Project. Zoe runs a salon business (Zen of Essence) located on the site of what was No. 8 Court (Twitchell’s Yard), where Polly Button used to live. The address is Unit 2 Wheatsheaf Court, Upper Abbey Street, Abbey Green, Nuneaton CV11 5DJ – opposite Hatters Space. If you choose to collect the book, the package will include a signed commemorative certificate of collection from that Polly Button-related location and a limited-edition Polly Button bookmark. There will be special evening launch events on 2 August (at Zen of Essence) and 5 August (at Hatters Space) where pre-ordered books can be collected or books bought directly. Thereafter, collection from Zen of Essence can be at any time the salon is open. Full details are sent to those purchasing online.


You may choose to have it posted to you by second class Royal Mail delivery. For orders placed before 31 August 2019, the price can include free post and packing. However, if you wish to help maximise the benefit to the three charities and good causes, you can choose to pay the post and packing charge as an option.
