We will be in Arcadia Ale and Wine Bar, in Headingley, from 7 pm.
I will be giving out copies of Stuart: A Life Backwards by Alexander Masters. I tend to find that emerging readers, who I would prefer to receive free copies, like true-life stories, and this is a beautiful sad book.
Other book-givers will be joining me giving away books. I’ll also be bringing the Travelling Suitcase Library and be running a book swap.
Yes, World Book Night has caused a fair bit of controversy, but personally I think that anything that promotes reading for pleasure is a good thing.
I hope to see lots of people on Saturday!
