Writers’ group marks World Book Night


TOWCESTER: Towcester Writers’ Group will celebrate World Book Night next Monday, April 23, with an informal discussion of 25 critically-acclaimed titles.

Running from 7.30pm to 9.30pm in Towcester Library, the event will include discussions of books including Emma Donoghue’s Room and Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief.

Writers’ group member Nicola Shaw said: “Reading is so much more than something for the kids.

“Come along and see what you can discover.”

The full list of books is available at www.worldbooknight.org.

Jenny Carter from the 3 Rs Network will attend the event to spread the word about the group’s new Get Reading project, and Towcester Friends Group will provide cake and tea.

Entry is £1.50.
