Kasia McEnery to help encourage men to read more

Have your say

A BOOK worm will be visiting pubs in Oakham on Monday night to encourage more men to pick up a good read.

Kasia McEnery has volunteered to visit the town for World Book Night and give out copies of “Touching the Void”.

She has 26 copies of the book to give away to people who do not usually think to pick up a book for fun.

She said: “I think it is a great book that will appeal to men more than many of the other book choices.

“It is about two men who get into trouble climbing in the Andes and what happens to them.”

World Book Night has been started by book lovers to encourage non-readers to read.
