Penzance Literary Festival took place in the town last week and the library hosted a number of talks and workshops as well as offering Library tours throughout the week.  
Dawn (who conducts our regular Friday afternoon library tours) did a fantastic job and took lots of people around the library, explaining our history and origins, and showing some  unique items from the special collections and archive.  We would also like to thank Ros in particular who was an amazing host, offering visitors tea, coffee and biscuits and doing a mountain of washing up – the best front of house we could ask for.  
The talks and workshops were all well attended and enjoyed- the reading room was packed out for three lectures/workshops a day and all the guest speakers were well received.  So, well done to Peter Levin and his team who co-ordinated and ensured everything ran smoothly – the festival was even bigger and better than last year and we look forward to PZ lit-fest 2012!
