We're celebrating the publication of 'Keedie'.

Set in Juniper five years before A Kind of Spark comes a powerful coming-of-age story from award-winning author Elle McNicoll. As Keedie and her twin Nina approach their fourteenth birthday, they seem to only be growing further apart. Keedie instead feels drawn to, and fiercely protective of, their quiet younger sister Addie - who on the surface is the opposite of loud and fiery Keedie, but in fact they have more in common than anyone knows.

Under 8s must be accompanied by a ticket holding adult.

We are launching the Teen Book Club, on Saturday 29th June at 3:00pm.

Each month you will vote from a hand-selected three titles and that will be the following month’s book. However, as this will be our first meeting, Natasha has chosen the book for the coming month, so that it is ready and waiting for you to collect.

For our first meeting, feel free to bring along a favourite book or two to talk about.
Natasha has selected William Sutcliffe’s ‘The Gifted, the talented and Me’.
