Copies of Alexander McCall’s The No 1 Ladies Detective Agency were given away to women attending a confidence building course at WomenCentre, Halifax as part of World Book Night.
Lesley Whiting, learning and skills co-ordinator at the centre, said: “We thought it would be appropriate to give the books away in one of the confidence building sessions. We aim to create an environment where women can become more resilient and make positive life choices.
“We will make sure women involved in all our projects get a chance to have a book. The idea is the books are then passed on so as many people as possible can read them.”
