    William Shakespeare

    Today is a celebration of William Shakespeare’s 451st birthday!  This legendary playwright, whose works include Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet, is said to have been born on this day.  Today also marks the day of his death (some 399 years ago). Some great ways to celebrate the Bard’s life, if you’re lucky enough to be in Stratford-Upon-Avon this Saturday, is to join the celebrations which include a parade and a day filled with fun and festivities. More information can be found at www.shakespearescelebrations.com.  Also, the Shakespeare Globe Theatre is running many special offers today and also has tickets for performances starting from just £5! Find out more here www.shakespearesglobe.com

    If you would like a great way to mark this occasion, there’s a choice of a Macbeth or Henry V mug at Miss Bohemia!

  4. World Book Day & 10 Book Related Finds

     

    It's 'World Book Day' Today!  What is World Book Day I hear you ask? Well it's a "celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it's a celebration of reading.  This special event is in its 18th year and is designated by UNESCO and marked in over 100 countries worldwide!  On this day children of all ages come together "to appreciate reading." 

    As a child, reading was and still is one of my favourite pastimes.  In fact I loved reading so much that it forms the basis of almost everything in my Miss Bohemia shop and I must " declare after all, there is no enjoyment like reading" ~ Jane Austen.   

    World Book Day aims to help children explore the pleasure of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own. To mark the day, all school children are entitled to receive a World Book Day £1 book token. It can be exchanged for one of ten specially published World Book Day £1 —including Goth Girl and the Pirate Queen by Chris Riddell, Best Mates by Michael Morpurgo —or is redeemable against any book or audio book of their choice costing £2.99 or more at a participating bookshop or book club. For the latest news and updates about this great celebration known as World Book Day 2015, visit worldbookday.com.
