Join me on Saturday at 2pm on North Manchester FM for a Festival of Libraries Special Edition of Hannah’s Bookshelf. I’m going to be finding out more about what’s coming up in this exciting (and unique) festival, which is taking place next month.
The second Manchester City of Literature Festival of Libraries takes place across Greater Manchester from Wednesday 15th-Sunday 19th June. This year’s programme includes events for all ages, as well as talks, interviews, tours, creative projects and activities at local libraries across GM and Manchester’s heritage libraries. You can see the full programme of events on the Manchester City of Literature website.
On Saturday’s show, I’ll be talking to some of the people involved in the festival. Reece Williams from Manchester City of Literature and Festival of Libraries ambassador Lemn Sissay will be talking to me about this year’s programme. I’ll be hearing from Jenny Martin from Wigan Libraries about Look for a Book, from North Manchester’s very own Malandra Jacks about Little Libraries, and from Becky Swain and Martin Kratz about Manchester Poetry Library. And I’ll also be joined by some of the artists and writers who are taking part in various events for the festival, including Abigail Reynolds, Joanna M. Williams, Andrew McMillan and Vera Tymchyshym.
Tune in to the Hannah’s Bookshelf Festival of Libraries Special on Saturday at 2pm on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
