Write a ‘letter to myself’ today in the Library

What would you write in a letter to yourself, to either your past, present or future self? I’m taking part in this journey of self-discovery, choosing to write about my past self. Enough there already. It’s taking place today from 11.30-14.30 near the library entrance. There’s even free chocolate. It’s also part of a show at Lincoln’s Drill Hall – if you’re interested, pop along!
