I know you’re all such fans of 6Music as I am – so I expect you already know about this but just in case: 6Music are doing a ‘6Music Celebrates Libraries’ broadcast today for ‘Read a Book Day’ and they are live from Manchester Central library
NOW. If you missed it – or missed the beginning section from 1pm they had authors such as Kate Mosse and Mark Billingham saying what libraries mean to them and choosing a track to play.
