BIG BOOK GIVE AWAY SET FOR THURSDAY 27TH APRIL

Morpeth School’s annual Big Book Giveaway takes place on Thursday 27th April 2017, 4.30 to 6.00pm.

The event marks World Book Night, a celebration of reading and literature, which officially takes place on 23rd April.

Up to 200 adults and children queued to pick up hundreds of free books at the school’s first Give Away last year.

Organiser, Morpeth Librarian, Amanda Ball said:

“Given the success of our first Big book Giveaway, its clear there is a love for books and a desire to read.

“We had almost 1000 fiction and non-fiction titles up for grabs, almost all of which were taken.

“We want to provide an opportunity for as many people in our community as possible to get their hands on even more books, by giving them away free."

Publications include fiction and non-fiction for adults, teenagers and toddlers.

The event takes place at Morpeth School, Portman Place, London E2 OPX.
