LIBRARIES around the area are hosting events as part of a celebration of books.

Havant Literary Festival, which begins on Friday, has a number of exciting talks and plays on at Waterlooville Library.

The first is a one-woman show based on the Michael Morpurgo children’s book, I Believe in Unicorns, working in partnership with The Spring in Havant. It is on October 7 at 4.30pm.

Civil war writer Michael Arnold will talk about his Stryker World Chronicles series, featuring royalist hero Captain Stryker, on October 8 at 7pm.

And on October 14, join author and costume historian Lucy Adlington for an inspiring insight into the lives and aspirations of women in World War One, as revealed through their clothes.

Lucy uses fascinating first-hand stories and a beautiful display of original uniforms and fashions, as featured in her new book Great War Fashion – Tales from the History Wardrobe.
