World Book Night 2021
The Arts Council of Northern Ireland, the MAC and Libraries NI have come together to encourage bona fide bookworms, families and occasional readers, to settle down, curl up and enjoy this year’s World Book Night celebrations; the annual celebration of reading campaign by The Reading Agency on Friday 23rd April 2021.
To mark the occasion, the Arts Council and the MAC will be gifting 160 free copies of East Belfast-author Glenn Patterson’s latest novel, Where Are We Now? to community groups, book clubs and members of the public. In addition Libraries NI will have copies of the book available in its branches across Northern Ireland for readers to borrow through its Book and Collect service.
One of 22 books chosen to be part of this year’s official UK World Book Night reading list, Where Are we Now? is a moving, funny and topical story about lost love and growing older, set against a backdrop of modern day Belfast.
