World Book Night 2021 – The Herbarium
“With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?” Oscar Wilde
Organised by Sarah Bodman and Linda Parr: WBN United Artists invited participants to identify a poem or text about flowers then create one – paper, fabric, collage, drawn, printed, text-based, photographic etc., for our exhibition, bibliography and exchange. On World Book Night 23/04/21 we will reveal the special printed keepsake for World Book Night on Twitter. Find out more here.
We are showing the flowers at Bower Ashton library 23/04/21 – 23/05/21. As the library is not currently open to the public we have also created a downloadable pdf available here.
