World Book Day
Thursday 2 March is World Book Day! Why not team up your community cinema with a local book club to screen a popular film adaptation of a classic novel or invite local school groups to see the characters from their favourite books come to life on the big screen?
Have a look at some of our recommended titles and ideas on how to collaborate with your local library or book club.
