Read All About It – World Book Day and Night in West Sussex

World Book Day on Thursday March 3 and the first ever World Book Night on Saturday March 5 will be celebrated in West Sussex with a series of author visits and free books being given away.

Three female authors will be visiting Worthing and Storrington Libraries.

Author of the ‘Jordan Lacey’ series and the ‘Casey Jones Cruise Ships Mysteries’, Stella Whitelaw will be visiting Worthing Library on World Book Day at 2pm. She will give a talk aimed at new writers, and those exploring a career in writing, on how to get your book published. She will also be signing copies of her most recent book, ‘Book Proposals: The essential Guide’.

Tickets are free but space is limited so advance booking is required. Call Worthing Library on 01903 704809.

‘Wheels Around the World’ at Storrington Library, from 7pm, also on World Book Day, will see travel writers Pam Goodall and Doreen Webster discuss their books based on their experiences of travelling the world with a difference.

West Sussex resident Pam was approaching her 60th birthday when she decided to leave her comfortable home and pedal her way around Europe, Asia and America on a bicycle.

Doreen Webster, 76, has written a guide on travelling with her wheelchair-bound husband, around the world, seeing everything from a Canadian glacier to the Great Wall of China.

Tickets are £1 and are available from Storrington Library on 01903 743075.

World Book Day is followed by the first ever World Book Night on Saturday March 5.

Across Britain more than a million books will be given away for free in an effort to get more people reading and talking about literature. Publishers are providing the books of nominated book-givers to give out and some have been chosen to do this West Sussex Libraries.

A limited number of free copies of books will be available during the day at:

• Billingshurst Library – Rachel’s Holiday by Marian Keyes

• East Grinstead Library – Northern Lights by Philip Pullman

• Horsham Library – Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Rachel’s Holiday by Marian Keyes (for those joining guided tours behind the scenes of Horsham library).

From 6.30 – 8.30 pm, Crawley Library will see authors and readers unite, with visitors receiving free copies of several books, including the award-winning Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell and books by bestselling author Sam Hayes, who will be attending the event.

Tickets cost £3 and include a free glass of wine or soft drink.
