Pictures of the week

As the summer holiday draws to a close, the autumn rush begins, marked this week with the release of a number of big books.

Among them was the late Sir Terry Pratchett's last novel, The Shepherd's Crown (Doubleday Children's), and we've got pictures from the midnight opening held at Waterstones Piccadilly to mark the launch of the book.

We've also got pictures of Hanya Yanagihara at her event at Foyles for the Man Booker Prize-longlisted A Little Life (Picador), and you can see the special guest who visited The Bookseller offices this week.

Here are our pictures of the week.
