What’s New at First Draft Books
- World Book Day
Celebrate World Book Day — the biggest book day of the year — with us! We will be joining up with other great Bovey Tracey book people to make the most it. Here’s what we’re planning:
Through March 31, 2024: Swap your vouchers for a free World Book Day book or put it towards any children’s book in the shop.
Thursday, March 7, 2024 [World Book Day]:
In the shop – We’ll be celebrating the launch of AdventureMice: Mice on the Moon by local legends Philip Reeve & Sarah McIntyre. Expect extravagant displays and a book character costume contest at 4pm (for under 16s) with a fun bookish prize!
In the school – Find us in Bovey Tracey Primary School that afternoon reading in classrooms with local author & illustrator Mike Luckie, and then enjoying an epic book party to close out the school day. We’ll have World Book Day books to swap for vouchers plus more of our favourite new reads to buy on the day if inspired.
Saturday, March 9, 2024: Calling all young artists (under 16s)! Bovey Tracey Public Library & First Draft books invite you to create a special “sprayed book edge.” Enter the competition by 10:30am to be in the running to win a free book (up to £10 value) in the shop. Winner will be announced at 11am.
