World Book Day in Ellon

BETTER Read Books on Ythan Terrace will be hosting author Karen Reid, author of ‘Hollow Footsteps’ between 1 and 3pm, as part of World Book Day.

This will be followed by a World Book Night Evening event on Saturday, March 5, between 6 and 8pm.

Helen Macdonald is one of the ‘givers’ who has elected to give away copies of the Gabriel Garcia Marquez novel ‘Love in the Time of Cholera’ from the bookshop, as well as at various locations at Stuartfield, Fraserburgh Lifeboat Station and to members of Pittulie Crafty Women’s group.

Helen will read excerpts from the book and be on hand to share why she has chosen this book during the evening, and it is hoped that other ‘givers’ will come along to speak of, and share. their own favourite books.
