The biggest country-wide celebration of reading, World Book Night, is just around the corner, with tens of thousands of passionate book lovers from all over the UK poised to share the 25 specially selected and best-loved books for absolutely no price at all. What could be better than getting your hands on a free book? Perhaps a whole night of bookish delights at Liverpool’s very own independent bookshop…
News From Nowhere are holding a special evening event on World Book Night – Monday 23rd April from 6pm-9pm – to allow literature lovers to celebrate the momentous occasion surrounded by tons of books. They’ll have 25 free copies of one of the World Book Night books, Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, to give away on the night, as well as a communal book display for readers to show off the books they love, a range of one-minute readings from favourite books, consolation prizes for those who don’t manage to snap up one of the 25 free copies of Good Omens and refreshments for all.
Whether you’re a seasoned booklover or you’ve never been in a bookshop before, this night is for you – you can browse, buy or just soak up the bookish atmosphere. It’s also Shakespeare’s birthday, and we’re sure he could think of no better birthday party than sharing in the joys of books.
