Benderloch’s Bookends pops-up this Friday, June 3, at the Victory Hall.

Bookends festival founder Joy Cameron said: ‘We were so disappointed to postpone last month’s Bookends Pop-up event due to much needed time out for our volunteers and because of Covid cases, but we are back to full strength and would be delighted if you would join us.’

The event, one of a series of pop-up sessions celebrating the written word, will be in the hall’s reading room from 11am to 3pm.

‘We have been busy sorting through all of the bookshelves, organising new donations and have some great new titles in fiction and fact which we hope you’ll enjoy. As always we have a large collection for children of all ages.

‘This is a free event where you can browse hundreds of pre-loved books and take away any you wish to keep or pass on to others. The kettle will be on, cakes baked and there’s always a warm welcome. If you’d rather coorie away in one of our little reading nooks, then we’ll simply leave you in peace to read and browse,’ added Joy.

Cash donations at the pop-up will go towards the costs of bringing authors and storytellers to schools and holding several events over the summer and autumn in the reading room with storytellers, poets and writers of all kinds visiting.

‘This year as well as local authors we have at least one big name from the crime fiction world who is joining us,’ said Joy on behalf of the Bookends team.
