World Book Night 2013 – Our events!

On Tuesday the 23rd of April, we are going to be celebrating World Book Night.
We’d love to invite you to attend the following:
Leeds Book Club (and Maths Jam)
at the White Swan – City Centre
FB                                                                     Leeds Inspired                                             
Book swap – 7pm                                              Epic Book Based Quiz – 9pm
The rather spectacular @Gazpachodragon will be hosting our second WBN night in the heart of the city. There will be a variety of WBN titles to pick from, as well as other second hand books. Attendees are encouraged to bring along books to swap. Bags for swag are also strongly recommended!
After the resounding success of last years cake table, I’m delighted to confirm that there will be even more delicious treats available as both the pub and epic book clubbers will be bringing along buns, cakes and all manner of baked goodies. If you’re a natural in the kitchen, don’t hesitate to rustle up a batch yourself!
Believe it or not – there’s more! Kirsty has been putting her legend- wait-for-it -dary Quiz creating skills to good use and has devised a fabulous book based quiz. We’ve been collecting some amazing prizes from some of the best – to be announced later this week!
Leeds Book Club
at Medusa Bar – Horsforth

Book swap – 7pm                                              Epic Book Based Quiz – 9pm
For those not based in the city centre, why not join me in Horsforth. I’ll be hosting a WBN swap from 7pm giving away Jasper FForde’s The Eyre Affair (co-incidentally one of our upcoming White Swan book choices) – one of my favourite books – so as you can imagine I’m hugely excited to be able to share this with others.
Additionally, our general book swap is going to be big. How big? Well, apparently the pile we’ve already collected could quite happily facilitate the opening of a small book store so the chances of you finding your next perfect read is high!
I’ll be hosting a massive book swap and WBN giveaway from 7pm in our regular book clubbing venue in Horsforth.
On top of that, we’ll be holding the Epic Book Based Quiz with exciting prizes to win – yes it’s the same quiz described above as I do *NOT* share Kirsty talent. But it’s on at the exact same time – so unless you are actually Doctor Who – don’t expect any advantages!!
Finally – though not technically an LBC event – I can’t not mention the TSL event at Arcadia. It is after all how I was introduced to World Book Night and is always a huge success, a right laugh and tons of fun!
Travelling Suitcase Library
at Arcadia Bar – Headingley
FB                                                                     Leeds Inspired                                         
Join the TSL for it’s third annual WBN celebration at the fabulous Arcadia Bar in Headingley. I think it’s safe to say this will be an AWESOME night as there are a huge range of books on offer.
Also, the TS Librarian has special superpowers and can tell what you NEED to read just by looking at you.
Seriously, it’s like a gift. You should totally see it in action. Uncanny.
