URGENT UPDATE FOR MONDAY'S OCTOBER

LITERARY LUNCH!

A new venue for the October Literary Lunch,

Monday 7th October

Unfortunately, the Granary Cafe are no longer able to host next Monday's Literary Lunch. The Lunch is still going ahead, but it will now take place in the Linlithgow Canal Tearooms at 1pm.

The menu will be spiced pumpkin soup, followed by a selection of home baking (brownies and coffee walnut cake will feature!) 

To make up for the inconvenience, a free copy of Sandra Ireland's latest novel, The Unmaking of Ellie Rook will now be included in the original ticket price.

Also, as we're moving to the Tearooms we do have a few extra spaces, so please get in touch if you'd like to come along!
