Ar­ran Li­brary hosts book week event

The Arran Banner - - News -

Ar­ran is tak­ing part in Book Week Scot­land 2018, which runs from Novem­ber 19 to 25, when this year’s theme is Rebel.

Vis­it­ing au­thor Barb Taub will read from her book Life Be­gins When the Kids Leave Home and the Dog Dies on Novem­ber 21 from 7pm to 8pm at Ar­ran Li­brary in Brod­ick

In hal­cyon days BC (be­fore chil­dren), Barb wrote a hu­mor­ous col­umn for sev­eral Mid­west news­pa­pers. With the ar­rival of child num­ber four, she veered to­wards the dark side, an HR ca­reer. Fol­low­ing a dar­ing day­time es­cape to Eng­land, she’s lived in a me­dieval cas­tle, a Hob­bit house and on a Scot­tish isle with her prince-of-a-guy and the world’s most spoiled Aussie dog.

Con­sid­er­ing all her days are now Satur­days, Barb is amazed that this is her sixth book. This is a free tick­eted event, but tele­phone 01770 302835 to book your place.

The Ar­ran event is just one of hun­dreds tak­ing place across Scot­land dur­ing the week. Marc Lam­bert, CEO of the Scot­tish Book Trust, said: ‘We’re de­lighted to present an­other packed pro­gramme for Book Week Scot­land, our cel­e­bra­tion of read­ing and writ­ing.’
