School librarians across the UK are planning a very special event to celebrate National Libraries Day 2013. They are hoping to set a Guinness World Record for the most people writing a short story with “PARALLEL UNIVERSES”.

Matt Haig, award-winning author and writer-in-residence for Booktrust will write the beginning of the story with school children across the land invited to continue the story by writing a middle and an ending.

This mass story-writing will take place on Wednesday 6 February at 12.00pm for one hour.
