Readers Day at Aboyne

Deeside book lovers are being offered the chance to meet four successful Scottish authors taking part in Readers Day 2012.

The event is a great opportunity to meet writers Alan Bissett, Anne Donovan, Margaret Elphinstone and Douglas Jackson, ask them questions and have an informal chat.

Readers Day is presented by Aberdeenshire Libraries and supported by the Scottish Book Trust.

This year’s event will be held at Aboyne Community Centre, on Bridgeview Road, on Saturday, September 15 from 10am until 3.15pm.

Coffee and lunch will be provided, with a chance to buy the authors’ books during the lunch break.

There is also an opportunity to swap books with other participants, so bring along a book you have read and would like to swap for another.

The event costs £15, including coffee on arrival and lunch.

Registration fliers can be picked up from Aboyne, Banchory and Ballater libraries, or email: ALIS.Requests@aberdeenshire.gov.uk.
