Library celebrates World Book Night

The Henry Bloom Noble Library celebrated World Book Night on Saturday April 23 with local authors Rakie Keig, Michele McGrath and Michelle Tonnesen. Local author and director of Manx Litfest John Quirk chaired the panel, asking questions about the authors' writing techniques and inspiration and how they got their work published, while Manx Bard Stacey Astill set the tone for the evening by reading two poems about books and writing.

The event was kindly sponsored by Sure which meant that attendees were able to take home a free copy of one of the authors' books, along with a free World Book Night book from Ruth Baxendale of the Isle of Man Poetry Society.
