FOR the first time ever the Pannett Art Gallery is taking part in World Book Night and has 25 copies of The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro to give away.
The books are specially chosen to be given away to those who don’t regularly read, to share and spread the love of reading and will be available from the Gallery on a first come first served basis from Tuesday 24 April.
A spokesperson for the gallery said: “So if you fancy a good read do come along and pick up a book, or spread the word amongst your friends and family that the Pannett Art Gallery is part of World Book Night.
“If you collect a book do read it, we hope you enjoy it, then pass it on to spread the enjoyment of reading.”
The book is set during the summer of 1956 when Stevens, the ageing butler of Darlington Hall, embarks on a leisurely holiday that will take him deep into the countryside and into his past.
A contemporary classic, The Remains of the Day is Kazuo Ishiguro’s beautiful and haunting evocation of life between the wars in a Great English House.
