Book Lover’s Extravaganza
7.30pm, Friday 10th May
LEAF, Bold Street, Liverpool, L1 4EZ
Calling all Liverpool lovers of literature! As part of the In Other Words festival, LEAF Book Club and Waterstones are teaming up to host an evening of book-based fun to raise money for The Reader Organisation.
There will be all manner of literary entertainment, including a quiz with tantalising prizes, shared reading sessions, and appearances from local authors including Deborah Morgan (Disappearing Home), Caroline Smailes (The Drowning of Arthur Braxton), Cathy Cassidy (Chocolate Box Girls series) and David Jackson (Pariah). The event aims to bring together readers and writers from across Liverpool to share our passion for the power of reading.
There will also be a Book Amnesty running in the week prior to the quiz, 3rd-10th May. If you have books you no longer read, please do drop them into LEAF so we can put them into the hands of new readers across the city.
The Reader Organisation will be out in force on the night to introduce people to our work, our favourite books, and the joys of shared reading (we won’t just be there competing to win the amazing prizes, honest…).
We’d like to say a huge thank you to Jennie at LEAF and Sarah at Waterstones for their hard work in organising what looks set to be a great night to meet other book-lovers, test your literary knowledge, and help raise money to support our mission to build a reading revolution.
We’d love all the book lovers out there to come along and join us for this extravaganza, so it’s time to start recruiting your quiz team and dig out those unread books lurking under the bed…
