A Fylde coast book store is set for a busy period as part of World Book Day celebrations.

Next week, Silverdell in Poulton Street, Kirkham, hosts two events for enthusiastic readers.

Owner Elaine Silverwood said: “On Monday, six authors head to King George’s Hall in Blackburn to talk to children about their collections.

“Lauren St John, Cathy Cassidy, Curtis Jobling, Jonathan Meres, Alex T Smith and Laura Dockrill will speak to pupils and sign copies.

“On Wednesday, BBC children’s television presenters Dick and Dom will speak at Rossall School, before travelling to Accrington Academy and then back to Kirkham for a book signing event at 4pm.

“There has been a tremendous reaction to their books Dick and Dom’s Slightly Naughty But Very Silly Words and Dick and Dom’s Big Fat and Very Silly Joke Book.

“We’re looking forward to a busy but entertaining week.”
