Coun Carl Sherwood, cabinet member for Customer Services, Sport and Leisure, said: “World Book Night is fantastic way of encouraging people to share their love of books and reading. The quiz is a fun way of learning more about books and testing peoples’ knowledge. It’s the perfect opportunity as well to encourage people that don’t read to pick up a book and discover how enjoyable reading is.

“The previous World Book Night quizzes have been very popular and we have received some great feedback. Don’t miss out on this year’s quiz – get your tickets today.”
