Di gets 48 Alan Bennett books to give away.

HONITON Library user Di Goldby is passionate about books - and that is why she has been chosen to give away books on World Book Night (Saturday, March 5).

During the world’s biggest ever book give-away, Di will distribute 48 copies of celebrated writer Alan Bennet’s A Life Like Other People’s to friends and relatives.

One million books are being given away on Saturday - two days after World Book Day.

The event is being supported by major publishers and industry associations.
