Roald Dahl Day
It’s Roald Dahl Day! Everyone’s favourite children’s author is celebrated every year on his birthday, 13th September. You can find out more on the website and do catch Michael Rosen’s Puffin Virtually Live webcast from 2pm till 2.45pm today. The theme this year is mischief and mayhem, so it should be lots of fun!
We’ve got lots of books by and about Roald Dahl in Townhill Library, so why not pop in today to pick up some weekend reading. Roald Dahl Day is the perfect excuse to rediscover a childhood favourite, or find a new treat.
We’ll leave the last word to author Nadia Shireen, who this morning tweeted "As is customary on #RoaldDahlday, learn a new word, outwit a grown-up and scoff some Dairy Milk." Sounds good to us!
