Birmingham City Council is having a 5.6% cut imposed upon it by central government, and as a result public services across the board will be cut. Most painful of all, the Library of Birmingham’s services will be drastically reduced. The Library is not just a local service, it is a national hub. If you care about libraries, please respond to the online survey.
This is Sue’s take on the book launch – she obviously felt more nervous than she looked. I think I learned three things:
1. Take plenty of biros to sign books – we only had one or two between the lot of us.
2. The audience wants to know about the scope of the story and especially about the writing journey.
3. Relax and enjoy it, the hard work is over.
