World Book Night

PEOPLE can help celebrate World Book Night on Friday 4 March at Whitby Library.

At the event from 7pm to 9.30pm, people will be able to cast their vote at the library on Windsor Terrace for their favourite of the 25 World Book Night titles, which include Nigel Slater’s Toast, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark and the Killing Floor by Lee Child.

Award-winning Whitby writer Christ Firth, whose forthcoming science fiction novella The Strip is out in April, will be reading and telling some of his own stories of ghostly goings-on. Chris will be donating his fee to Caedmon School’s Red Nose Day event.

World Book Night was inspired by the success of World Book Day and is aimed at promoting one of life’s greatest pleasures which is to read a book.

People can drop in anytime between 7pm and 9.30pm and be part of the very first World Book Night.
