We are back at the 78 for our second literary quiz night. It’s happening Tues March 9th, quiz itself to start at 9 so Iwould suggest getting there a little earlier. We pretty much filled the place last time.

Derek will be smoothly quizmastering again. The format will follow the first: rounds on general literature, scottish lit, crime, childrens. We have yet to determine the prizes but there will be first and second place and a special raffle prize with the proceeds going to Haiti. All in all, should be a great night. The 78 is veggie and a nice place for a swift half-shandy or two (some decent imported beers too I think), so anyone wanting to make a night of it by all means come and get your tea there first.  Hope to see some of you good folk looking to show off your knowledge.

Shop news this week:

Our crime promotion is going along nicely, plenty of donation and good sales. Following it, we will have a retro kids/ladybird book sale. We’ve been stockpiling ladybirds for a few months so collectors keep an eye out in March.

We are gearing up for our second quiz. Provisionally it looks like March 9th at The 78 Bar, Kelvinhaugh St. The format will be similar to the first, lots of questions of literary fiction, scottish fiction, crime etc. I think we pitched the last one pretty well, so if you fancy you know your Hemingway from your Hardy, get a team together. I’ll post final details when we confirm the date. Proceeds from the night will go toward ongoing work in Haiti.

It’s also crime month, with the emphasis this year on women crime writers/sub-genres. As always we’ve given over extra modules to display our offer and we’re hoping for the spike in donations that usually comes with this promotion.

Finally, the style shop is in the middle if a substantial refit. It will reopen as an Oxfam DIY shop, still dealing in clothing, but with a quirkier, fresher branding. It will reopen later in the month. Must visit!
