Day's Dying Glory
A Tale of 30 Libraries
There have been a lot of lovely things said about libraries throughout the years. Einstein himself said "the only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library" and so we can assume that the brainiest people know and love their local libraries.
Couple that with the fact that, sometimes, authors can get randomly very excited about throwaway suggestions that their publishers make (yes, folks, that's right and they are known to be a particularly stubbon bunch!) and then you have the "Tale of 30 Libraries" initiative that we are running prior to the launch of Day's Dying Glory.
Copies of Day's Dying Glory were sent anonymously to 30 libraries around the country, from Shetland to the Isles of Scilly! The author was happy for us to make the selection, and we chose libraries that had a link to the locations in the book, or to the author, or just ones that we liked the look of!
Here are the libraries we sent the book to:
Bromsgrove Library, Worcestershire
West Norwood Library, Lambeth
Canton Library, Cardiff
Mitchell Library, Glasgow
Brough Library, East Yorkshire
Oakmere Library, Potters Bar
St Mary's Library, Scilly Isles
I can tell you, packaging thirty parcels (brown paper packages tied up with string!) took a lot longer than we were expecting, but it was worth it to know that the book was Out There.
