How we celebrated World Book Night

Shall we count the ways? First, here’s the fearless Annie Bell handing out books to unsuspecting builders and bus passengers.

Meanwhile wannabe pirates were solving a series of clues in order to locate “treasure” (books!) at a mystery location somewhere in Leith.

Several libraries were lucky enough to host visits from authors including Allan Guthrie, Andrew Greig and Caroline Dunford. At Corstorphine Library readers got together to share and swap books and reading recommendations.

Finally, Central Library was packed for an evening event with Meaghan Delahunt, Lesley Glaister and Alexander McCall Smith. Here’s Lesley and Meaghan with chair Peggy Hughes.

And here’s Alexander McCall Smith, clearly having a splendid time. Thanks to Alexander and everyone else who helped make this World Book Night such a success. Roll on next year!
