The BIG BOOK Meet

10-May-2024

This spring, Gibraltar Cultural Services will be hosting an event for literature enthusiasts of all ages at BOOKGem, Bookshop at Ince’s Hall. This interactive gathering promises a small-scale festival atmosphere inviting the community and visitors alike to immerse themselves in the world of narrative, poems, and storytelling.

The event, set to take place in the charming courtyard space of BOOKGem will feature a diverse range of activities aimed at fostering a love for reading and creating a vibrant community of book lovers. Those attending will be able to meet authors, indulge in storytelling sessions tailored for children, poetry recitals and participate in a book exchange/ free little library.

One of the highlights of the event will be the chance to bring your own reading materials or explore the offerings of the book exchange, thereby promoting the spirit of sharing and discovery. Whether lounging in the cozy nooks of the bookshop or basking in the sunshine of the courtyard. Participants are encouraged to embrace the joy of reading in a relaxed and welcoming environment.

This gathering will also serve as a platform to champion local authors and showcase Gibraltar’s rich heritage. By celebrating the diversity of writing, language, and stories within the community.

Join us on the 1st of June for a celebration of literature, creativity, and community spirit.
