Grab a fee book locally
A million books are expected to be given away this weekend to mark World Book Night.
This dynamic and unprecedented industry-wide initiative to celebrate adult books and reading will see a selection of titles given away by 20,000 passionate readers to other members of the public across the UK and Ireland.
It takes place on Saturday 5th March - two days after World Book Day, the established nationwide reading campaign.
Claire chose The Blind Assassin, a novel by Margaret Atwood, as the book she would recommend to others. She will be in the park on Saturday afternoon from around 2-4pm handing out copies to anyone who would like to read it.
If you would like a copy or know someone who would, please come and get one.
Find Claire near the bench dedicated to her son, Tom Clabburn, in the centre of the book near the Clovelly Road gate.
Local author Josa Young will also be giving away books.
She has chosen All Quiet on the Western Front and requests anyone interested (especially teenagers) contact her via twitter @JosaYoung to find out more details.
