Literary Festival helps Get Guernsey Reading

Guernsey Literary FestivalThe Guernsey Literary Festival has joined forces with the Guille-Allès Library to get the whole island reading and talking about it.

You can pick up a reading diary from the library and keep a note of all the books you read between March 5th and the May 14th when the Guernsey Literary Festival will be in full swing.

Over that time you can record your thoughts on the books you love, the books that move you, the books that you feel everyone should read and then share your reviews on the Guille-Allès Library website.

During the two months the diaries are available the Guille-Allès Library are holding special reading group events where you can hear what books other readers recommend.

And during the Guernsey Literary Festival there will be even more opportunity to discuss the books you have discovered.

Catriona Stares, Director of the Guernsey Literary Festival, said: “We felt it would be great to work with the library on building up interest in reading.

“We hope not just individuals but whole organisations will get involved in this project.”

You can pick up your diary from the Guille-Allès Library or download it from the Guernsey Literary Festival website.
