For the third year running, Leintwardine is pushing the boat out for World Book Night. There’s something for all ages and tastes too.
- Local children have been beavering away writing stories to enter for our young writers’ competition
- Children’s authors Anne Cottringer and Karen Wallace will hand out prizes to the winners at a party in the community centre on the evening of Saturday 22nd April
- Leintwardine author Tomas Remiarz is also launching his new book titled Forest Gardening in Practice – about creating an edible ecosystem
- The Leintwardine Players will be strutting the boards with an evening of Shakespeare on Thursday 20th April
The programme has been organised by Friends of Leintwardine Community Library (FOLCL). Chair of FOLCL, Parish Councillor Emma Gorbutt, said: “Public libraries are all about reaching out to the local community to inspire writing, reading and creativity. We are delighted to use our village library to encourage young writers, as well as spearhead the celebration of our literary heritage. Shakespeare, the world’s greatest poet and playwright, came from the West Midlands. That makes him very special for us.”
