National Reading Group Day 2012 logoCalling all book groups!

National Reading Group Day is on Saturday 30th June and you’re all invited to spend the afternoon at the Mitchell.

At 2 o’clock Alex Gray, author of Glasgow Kiss and other DI Lorimer books, will speak about her Alex Gray photowork and her experience of reading groups.                                                                                                      

We’ll have coffee and buns at 3pm, then it’s your turn to join in. You should all have a copy of Scotland’s Bookshelf and we want to know what you Scotland's Bookshelf book jacketthink of the twenty books that feature. What do you think has been missed off the list?
