Time to celebrate!
Less than two weeks to go until the official launch of Unchained, our anthology celebrating the 400th anniversary of Bristol’s original chained library. After a whole year of preparation, it’s truly exciting to see it all come together.
Join us for the launch
If anyone out there hasn’t heard the details, the launch event is part of the Bristol Festival of Literature (lots of other great stuff going on there) and will be at 7.30 on October 23rd in Bristol Central Library – in the gorgeous Reference Library itself. Every local writer or even reader we know should have had an invitation by now, but if you have somehow been missed, do leave a comment and I’ll get one to you.

Of course we hope the joy will not be confined to Bristol. This is a celebration of all libraries, everywhere and other things besides. If you can’t join us on the night, the book is in bookshops now and available to order online. Don’t forget the proceeds are going to a great cause, the National Literacy Trust.
There’s still a lot to do before the Big Day, but now we have the book in our hot little hands – a great job by Tangent Books and Wildspark Design. Worth a small celebration!
By the way, this post will be stuck fast to the top of this page for the time being – new posts (if time allows!) will pop up underneath.

I am a Bristolian writer of poetry. I would love to come along on 23rd. If you could send me an invitation (two would be better!) I shall make sure I’m there!
Hi Hilary- I hope you’ve had my email by now – looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday. Ali B
Thank you for your reply. I was very much looking forward to coming along on Wednesday evening, but have just been reliably informed I promised to attend a Birthday dinner! I am really sorry I will miss your event, but I would like to be kept advised of what you are all up to and perhaps meeting up at some point?
Sorry you couldn’t make it. Some of us will be at the Day fo the Word Lauchpad event tomorrow. http://unputdownable.org/news-updates/day-of-the-word-launch-pad-sat-26-oct
It’s in Hooper’s Cafe in Stokes Croft. Do pop in if you are in the area. AliB
Thank you for the invitation, however, I am on holiday for the next two weeks. Hopefully I will catch up with you shortly thereafter.
Thank you for a lovely evening, celebrating 400 years of libraries in Bristol. Great to see that both Bristol Central Library and it’s branch libraries have provided such inspiration for local writers.
Great to see you there. Pleased to support such great places and the people who run them. Ali B
