To celebrate the donation to the library of new books purchased through a grant from the Siobhan Dowd Trust, Frank will be talking about the books he has written – including Millions, Framed and Cosmic – signing copies, answering questions and sharing stories about his own childhood reading experiences.
The event is organised by Leasowe Reading and Wellbeing Library, a collaboration between Wirral Council and The Reader Organisation which promotes public engagement, improving users’ health and wellbeing and reducing social isolation. There are currently a range of groups for children and young people running weekly at the library, including Leasowe Bookworms (for children aged 6-12, Mondays and Fridays) and Frank’s visit is sure to be an unforgettable treat for all ages.
Cllr Chris Meaden, Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing at Wirral Council said:
“It’s very exciting to be able to welcome Frank to Leasowe Library. In recent years he has officially become a national treasure, and I’m sure he’ll be an engaging speaker with some fascinating insights into novel and scriptwriting. This is yet another brilliant event for Wirral Council’s library service.”
