Top comedienne and actress Jenny Eclair will bring her literary skills to Blackpool’s Central Library for World Book Night on 23 April when she will be discussing her latest novel ‘Moving’
Already acclaimed by fellow comedian Jo Brand as ‘witty, moving, dark and absorbing’, Jenny’s latest novel tells the story of a woman transported back to her past as she prepares to sell the house she has lived in for the last 50 years.
Perhaps best known recently for her appearances in TV’s Loose Women and Grumpy Old Women, Jenny, who grew up in Lytham St Annes as a child, has also enjoyed a successful career as a comedian, actress and novelist with ‘Moving’ appearing as her fourth novel.
World Book Night is designed to bring books and the opportunity to read more into people’s lives. It also encourages people to give or share their favourite book to someone in the community. Since it began in 2011, World Book Night has created a group of 56,000 volunteers, giving books away to over 2.24 million people.
Jenny Eclair’s appearance will be the centrepiece of World Book Night celebrations at the library, which are planned to include activities such as family reading sessions and limited book giveaways. Further details of these and other activities will be confirmed nearer the time.
