World Book Night - 14.00 to 17.00, with afternoon tea & talk at 15.30.

23rd April 2016 on Saturday at 14:00


World Book Night was first celebrated in the UK and Ireland in 2011 on 5 March. In 2012 it was moved to 23 April, the international day of the book and, probably, the birth and death date of William Shakespeare.

In late 2013 World Book Night became part of The Reading Agency and is now run as a Reading Agency programme as part of its work to inspire people to take up reading and celebrate the difference that reading makes to their lives. 2016 will be the sixth World Book Night celebration. 
The Edith Nesbit Society was founded in 1996 and has recently had its 20th anniversary. It aims to celebrate the life and work of the author and her friends, by means of talks, publications and visits to relevant places.
Marion Kennett, a founder of the Society, will give a talk on the author during the event at about 15.30. She will have some books for sale. 
Please consider bringing a new or second-hand book in good condition to donate or to swap for another book. If you have a favourite book or author, you will surely wish to share that interest with other book-lovers.
Maybe this will be the start of something good – a Grove Park Community Book Club???!!!
