Libraries Get In On The Fifty Shades Effect With Month-long Erotic Literature Festival

Posted at 1:58PM Sunday 11 Nov 2012

Your local library is the kind of place you expect to find an ageing gent flicking through a Charles Dickens or hunting for a Henry James.

But the explosion in popularity of erotic novels this year is set to give libraries a real boost when libraries up and down the country launch a month-long celebration of erotic literature.

From next Friday, the Between The Sheets festival will bring 30 of the top titillating titles to 33 libraries nationwide.
