A busy week of events at Troon Library with Book Week Scotland and Wintertainment

November 30, 2016

Troon Library had a full programme of events last week, as they celebrated Book Week Scotland and Wintertainment.

On Sunday afternoon Troon Library opened its doors for Wintertainment. With stalls to browse, DVD and book sale, face painting and drop in family Christmas Crafts, the library was buzzing with around 600 customers coming through the doors!

On Monday Troon author, Martin Stewart gave a fabulous presentation of his new novel Riverkeep to Marr College S3 pupils. He also gave the pupils lots of brilliant tips for research and writing.

On Wednesday night it was another full house for author Lesley Sehli who joined us to speak about her new book ‘He said die. I say no!’. Lesley’s talks have been very well received at the library and we’re hoping she’ll come back to visit us again in the New Year.

As our monthly Chatterbook group fell in Scottish Book Week we celebrated by inviting local author, Lyn Donogue, to read from her forthcoming book The Highland Princess. Lyn then described the personality of one of the fairies in her book and the children had to draw what they thought the fairy would look like. Lyn is going to pass on their magical drawings to her illustrator for inspiration!

To round off this busy week we were lucky enough to have Scottish children’s author, Elizabeth McKay, who read her books Wee Granny and the Magic Bag and Wee Granny and the Ceilidh to a captivated audience. The children loved the books and playing the games Elizabeth had created for her stories, she even had her very own mannequin challenge!

 

It was a busy night at Troon Library for Lesley Sehli’s book launch

November 3, 2016

We had a fantastic night at Troon Library for the launch of local author Lesley Sehli’s new book ‘He Said Die, I Say No’, an inspiring story of self-help and empowerment.

Lesley spoke about being the first British woman in history, behind the veil in Saudi Arabia, to hold a uniquely privileged position.  Her work reveals an underworld of prostitution, pain and imprisonment and in her capacity, she helps those she can.  Married in to an elite, powerful family, where money and riches were no object and then left destitute, fighting for survival against a deadly disease; her experience proves that things that can be presumed might hold you back will actually push you forward, and the truth can set you free!

She has recently won the Waterstone’s Novice Writer Award with an extract from her book and hopes her story will encourage others to give writing a chance.

She said: “I’m hoping that the book can reach out to anybody that has heard ‘you can’t do that’, and inspire them to try.”

Lesley will be joining us again at Troon Library as part of our Book Week Scotland events this month, but the event is already fully booked! Don’t despair too much if you were going to come along, Lesley hopes to return to Troon Library again sometime in February or March.
