World Book Night Revisited

Although I didn’t make it to the massive, historical, one-of-a-kind launch event in Trafalgar Square on 4 March to mark the inaugural World Book Night event, some lucky people did. Chantal Perez, MFL Web Editor at Mary Glasgow (Scholastic), sent in a couple of photos from the night, which featured the likes of Margaret Atwood, Graham Norton, Alan Bennett, Edna O’Brien, Sarah Waters and Philip Pullman.

Although it looks like a cold night in London, you can be sure I won’t miss the event next year. Guess what?

The 2012 Night is already being planned!
