Children's Book Launch - 'Grottie-Buckie an Tirli-Wirli'

Christine De Luca

On Sunday 11th July, we celebrated the launch of Christine De Luca’s latest Shetland dialect book for bairns ‘Grottie-Buckie an Tirli-Wirli’ with a family event in the Library. The event was also streamed live on Facebook. Christine read from the book and also one of her previous publications ‘Smootie comes to Lerrick’. We also had music from special guests ‘The Forget-Me-Notes’.  It was a lovely afternoon and we hope to have more book events in the Library again soon.
