Celebrate World Book Night at Kirkdale Books on Saturday

On Saturday 5 March 7pm-9.30pm, why not celebrate World Book Night with the Kirkdale Bookshop? The bookshop is asking all its customers to bring along a favourite book that they’d like to give away (preferably wrapped for added surpise value!) and exchange it for another. 

In addition, 22 of the bookshop customers have been selected to give away 48 copies of a title that they love. These have been chosen from a carefully selected shortlist of 25 titles including Life of Pi, Fingersmith, Toast, Cloud Atlas, Northern Lights and The Curious Incident of the Dog In the Night Time. So who knows what book you’ll go home with!

World Book Night is a nationwide celebration of reading. On Saturday March 5 up to one million people will receive a gift of a book from one of the 20,000 people who have successfully applied to give away 48 copies of a favourite book.

So come along on Saturday and celebrate the book – wine and nibbles will be provided (bring a bottle if you can!)

How am I going to give away all these books!
