To celebrate World Book Night we were lucky enough to host a visit from James Wallman, local author of the book Stuffocation: Living more with less. His book deals with very topical issues that affect us all today. The author argues that happiness comes not from possessions but from shared experiences. I am pleased to say that more than 40 people came to meet James and listen to his talk. This book is proving to be a popular one that everyone is talking about!
I look forward to hosting more events like this one that really engage many readers from the locality and justify our role as a library at the heart of the community.

Thiswas a fascinating talk by a lively and engaging young author and the questions asked by the very varied audience afterwards showed how strongly people felt about the issues raised. Well done Izzy!
