World Book Night A Success

World Book Night was celebrated in style with over 80 enthusiastic readers attending an event at Hamworthy Library last month.

Also joining in the fun were four Dorset authors; Elizabeth McGregor (who also writes as Elizabeth Cooke and Holly Fox), Pamela Fudge, Eve Bonham and Noel Lockyer-Stevens.

Sharing their passion for reading each author talked about their favourite books and those that have changed their lives.

Councillor Judy Butt, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Public Engagement and Participation, Borough of Poole, said: "The event was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the joy of books and reading. It is always fascinating to hear stories from authors who visit us in Poole, but to have four local authors in the same room at the same time was truly amazing. They certainly inspired all attending and have given everyone plenty of ideas as to which books they will read next."
