  • The Royal Library: Book Festival - 26th - 29th of the 4th Moon

    Hosted by Mistress Adeline and Company
    I have been planning this book festival for moons and while it has taken some time, I am pleased to finally be able to announce it to the rest of the castle.
    This will consist of three fun-packed days that celebrate literature and all things surrounding it.
    Literature does not need to be boring or dull, it can be fun and exciting and we of the Libraries are ready to show you how.

    So it is my hope that every single waking denizen of new and old join us in these events.
    All denizens with access to the Inner Bailey are invited to attend the Inner events, however, I cannot stress how important your behavior is.
    Those who fail to be proper and courteous will be asked to leave. I will still be looking for others to assist should you want to be apart of this.

    Thank you to those who have and will help, I could never do any of this without you.
    ~ Royal Librarian, Adeline Blackburn
