March 4th is World Book Day a chance to celebrate literature in all its forms. Whether you’re a fan of poetry, autobiography, fiction or spy novels it’s a chance to think about what books mean to you and future generations.
World Book Day has been a regular celebration in the UK and Ireland for some years now and it is of particular importance to schools. Children all over the UK will be going to school dressed as their favourite characters. It could be The Enormous Crocodile, Casper the Friendly Ghost, Alex Rider, Stig of the Dump or any of a cast of thousands.

Some very special events are taking place including a One Day Only showing of the paintings for Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings at the Bodleian Library in Oxford. Here is the Culture24 link.
Have a brilliant day!
