Festival of ‘words’

WORDS, North Lanarkshire’s festival of books and writing, will take place this October.

Since its launch six years ago, the event has grown from a one-week festival to a month-long celebration.

This year’s event will run from October 3 to 29, taking place mainly in libraries and including a range of genres.

As well as visits from authors, the festival will include the popular ‘Focus on Families Days’ which feature children’s author events, storytelling sessions, puppet workshops, games and craft activities.
