World Book Day
It's World Book Day this week, and I shall be one of the 20,000 UK distributors of free books. I shall have 48 copies of Toast by Nigel Slater (the chef) to give away. I enjoyed the BBC film of the book at Christmas and wanted to read the book as well, so when I saw that it was one of the books on the World Book Day list, I chose that one to give away.
I shall be distributing the books in Spun, the yarn shop in the Byram Arcade in Huddersfield, on Saturday March 5th, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. I have already contacted the members of the Huddersfield Ravelry group and other people I think would like to have a copy, but if I haven't contacted you and you would like one and you can get to Spun on Saturday, then please come along. Preferably let me know first (by a comment on this post) so that I can save you a copy.
There's an interesting piece by Nigel Slater in The Observer about what he felt about having a film made of his autobiography, and how unsettling it was to have Helena Bonham-Carter play his stepmother. You'll find it here.
