Writers' Roundabout @ The GLO Centre

06 October 2021

Join us for a fun day of writers' roundabout The GLO Centre! We're welcoming some of the wonderful local authors who support us at The GLO Bookshop. You can chat to the authors, look at their books and pick up a wee Christmas gift or two with special prices available 🙂

We'll have a open mic running through the day with book readings, bookie chat and general banter- a bit closer to the time, we'll post a bit of a running order. But don't hold us to it! If one of our authors gets a sudden literary inspiration (or just forgets the time....), everything might get thrown into confusion!
-
There's actually no telling where the authors may turn up- you may be having a bowl of soup when you're invited to feature in a new novel. Or you may be looking at cards when someone offers you a money off voucher. Or you may be in the children's section when you find a little lost Bertie who needs a helping hand to get home......
