Tuesday 23rd April; Shakespeare’s birthday, International Day of the Book , World Book Night and St George’s Day. A Tuesday of treasure for readers everywhere – great literature, favourite books and, especially for those of us here in Coventry, DRAGONS!
Oh, you didn’t know that St George was said to have been born and died in Coventry, saving a fair maiden from the jaws of a dragon whilst here? Yes, Wikipedia will tell you otherwise, but we like to believe it’s true. (As are fairies, unicorns and brownies who tidy the house when you’re asleep.) And this gives us a great excuse to explore that intriguing character who pops up regularly in literature we love.
Here be dragons!
