Bookish Bingo

Do you know your local literary heroes? Do you like prizes? As part of World Book Day, we’re running a competition for three people to win a library tote bag filled with a waterbottle, notebook, pencil, postcards, keyring and lolly.

Literary Bingo card with 16 images from the archive collections

All you have to do is match eight local authors (1-8) to eight locations (A-H) in the East Midlands associated with them or their works. Write the answers on the sheet along with your name and email address and return it to  Manuscripts & Special Collections, or email your answers to by Friday 10th March.

Physical copies of the Bingo Card can be picked up at all UoN library branches, or you can download a  PDF version.

Good luck!
