World Book Night 2016
We celebrated World Book Night at the library on Saturday 23rd April with local authors, Rakie Keig, Michele McGrath and Michelle Tonnesen. John Boyle was also due to appear but unfortunately couldn’t make it on the night. John Quirk local author and director of Manx Litfest chaired the panel, asking questions about the authors writing techniques and inspiration and how they got published. Manx Bard, Stacey Astill set the tone for the evening by reading two poems about books and writing.
