For the new year we present to you double happiness in the form of a double giveaway!
The second giveaway for today is for one pair of tickets to an event of your choosing at next month's Bookworm International Literary Festival.
The 'worm has been gearing up for this event for months, and only now is information about who'll be there and what we can expect to hear trickling into our eager ears. This year marks the Bookworm's third festival and a noticeable step up from previous years' events in both number and notoriety of the literary figures who will make appearances. What's more, according to official PR literature, the Bookworm promises to be "transformed into a hub of literary and intellectual activity" for the occasion.
And so, in homage to literary and intellectual activity and Bookworm quiz nights, we're going Jeopardy style on this giveaway.
