Celebrate World Book Day at The Little Book Jamboree on Sunday 8 March 2020 @ Hungerford Bookshop
Mar 8 @ 10:30 am – 5:30 pm

On Sunday 8 March 2020, and in celebration of World Book Day earlier in the week, Hungerford Bookshop and Hungerford Hub are hosting a whole day of book events and activities to celebrate books and reading for pleasure.

Little ones can start the day at the bookshop with Sunday Storytime at 10am before heading to the hub for some fun book-related craft activities.

Kids can catch three awesome authors throughout the day:

• Anna Fargher’s The Umbrella Mouse is a timeless, heart-stopping tale of courage, resistance and friendship drawing on the true stories of animals caught in the conflict of WWII, and winner of the 2019 Sainsbury’s Book Prize for Fiction and selected for Waterstones Book of the Month. It’s beautifully illustrated by Sam Usher (who grew up in Hungerford).

• Laura James will introduce Fabio: The World’s Greatest Flamingo Detective,  captivating capers for five- to seven-year-olds. Many children will know Laura’s Pug stories. Her talks are always fun and interactive.

• Local author Debi Evans will be telling children about The Secret Adventures of Rolo, her series of books about a time-travelling dog. With luck, Rolo will be making an appearance himself. Rolo is a Jack Russell who explores and explains history to children aided by dragons (though we can’t promise live visits from them).

Ongoing will be a big book swap at the bookshop – a great way to refresh your shelves – a book character hunt and of course this is the perfect opportunity to swap your World Book Day Vouchers for the special books in the bookshops, or use them to get £1 off one of the authors’ books on the day.

We are lucky to have a dyslexia expert on hand too. If you have concerns that your child may be dyslexic, Jacqui Fisher is the person to see for friendly informative advice. She’ll be in the hub from 11.00am to 12.30pm.

So spend your Sunday celebrating stories. Times, tickets and more information can be found by clicking here (see also the poster below). Alternatively, ask in Hungerford Bookshop or the Hungerford Hub for more details.

Clover Stroud talks to Sarah Langford about her new book ‘My Wild & Sleepless Nights’ @ Hungerford Town Hall
Mar 12 @ 7:30 pm – 8:45 pm
Clover Stroud talks to Sarah Langford about her new book 'My Wild & Sleepless Nights' @ Hungerford Town Hall | England | United Kingdom

Clover Stroud, author of The Wild Other, talks to Sarah Langford about her new book My Wild & Sleepless Nights: A Mother’s Story

Mother to five children, Clover Stroud has navigated family life across two decades, both losing and finding herself. In her touching, provocative and profoundly insightful book, she captures a sense of what motherhood really feels like – how intense, sensuous, joyful, boring, profound and dark it can be. My Wild and Sleepless Nights examines what it means to be a mother, and reveals with unflinching honesty the many conflicting emotions that this entails: the joy and the wonder, the loneliness and despair.

‘The best evocation of the all-consuming, self-eroding reality of motherhood, while also being luminous with love.’ – Sunday Times

Charting the course of one year, the first in her youngest child’s life, Clover searches for answers to questions that many of us would be too afraid to admit to – not only about motherhood, but also about female sexuality and identity. Her story will speak to all mothers, and anyone about to embark on that journey.
