Each year Open Book takes as many of its readers as it can to a literary experience - for some that's a visit to a book festival for others an author visit to their group. This year we expect to have requests from between 400 - 450 members to attend Edinburgh and Wigtown Book Festivals. We support our members with tickets, transport, lunch and where funds allow a book. Our Pay A Place appeal will raise funds for those outings.
This year we're asking for your help to be able to say YES to all the requests for places that come in.
Here's what your donation could do:
£10 supports a ticket to an event and a provides coffee/cake
£25 provides a ticket, lunch and a book
Thank you - for many of our readers the annual outing a highlight of their year "A Day To Treasure" as one of our readers put it last year.
