Swords and Spindles are pleased to announce that one of two of their characters will be involved in the World Book Night event at Walter Henry’s Bookshop, Bideford on 23rd April from 2-4pm. We know that isn’t the night but we do keep early hours in these rural parts. The event with other local authors including Liz Shakespeare and Peter Christie will have a seventeenth century flavour, falling as it does on the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. Please don’t tell that, with the exception of Sir Francis, we can’t read. Even Sir F’s reading is on the rudimentary side.
