Bookworms – do you fancy a free Alan Bennett on World Book Night?

People living in Hampshire who would like to receive a free copy of Alan Bennett’s poignant memoir of his early life, A Life Like Other People’s, then please contact with MEA member Amanda Laws.

Amanda will have 48 copies of the book to give away on ‘World Book Night” which is Saturday, March 5 – when publishing groups round the UK will be clubbing up to give away 40,000 copies of each of 25 separate titles, adding up to a massive giveway of one million books.

“I’ve been successful in applying to be a ‘Giver’ on World Book Night – now I have to work out the logistics of how to do it”, said Amanda. If you live in Hampshire and would like to apply for your free copy, please drop Amanda a line at
