We appear to have a problem with the 6×6 facebook page – for now at least please come here for information!
Thanks to all who braved the cold and turned out for our December 6×6 last night. Good fiction, coffee and biscuits were enjoyed by all!
Many thanks to those who read to us. LtoR: Jan Edwards, Debbi Voisey, June Palmer, Misha Herwin, Ken Kay and Harry Tomkinson.
Sadly two of our readers were unable to make it but Jan and Misha stepped into the breech and all was well. We shall hear Nic and Pauline another time.
As always many thanks to the Library staff for being there.
This was our last event for 2017 so happy Christmas to all and a prosperous new year! We shall be back for our first 2018 event in March!
It’s coming up to that time of year, when we are all having to turn our minds to the question of Christmas presents.
We spend a lot of time finding the perfect gift and what better gift can you give than a book? For me, Christmas without books isn’t really Christmas. After the food has been eaten, the wine drunk and the TV watched there is nothing better than curling up on the sofa with something new to read.
The world of books is so vast that you will find something for everyone. Books are easy to wrap, no awkward shapes, and if you order from Amazon, you don’t even have to worry about sending them.
Added to which, if you have a writer in the family, or as a friend then giving their books as presents is a great thing to do. In fact, it doubles the joy, for there is nothing better than knowing that there are people out there buying and reading your books.
And if you really want to put the icing on a writer’s cake, then when you’ve read, and enjoyed, their book, then please spread the word and write a review.
To make your present buying even easier, there will be books for sale at the next 6×6 Reading Café on Tuesday December 12th at 7pm in Hanley library.
And if you are an author with books in print please do bring them along for people to buy!
I spent Saturday afternoon compering the reading event at the Gladstone Museum in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent where a splendid array of writers were strutting their literary stuff, and a good time was had by all!
