Welcome to Word2016 kicking off with:
THE TWITS – 3-3.45pm Central Library
Mr. and Mrs. Twit are ready to welcome you to the magical world of Britain’s favourite children’s author as storyteller John Kirk retells Roald Dahl’s “The Twits” in public libraries this summer. “If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”

Warning: this story contains twits being vile to each other. Some children may find these vile things upsetting.
