LIBRARIES in Waltham Forest are taking part in a national event promoting erotic fiction.

More than 30 library services across the UK are involved in the 'Between the Sheets' celebration of erotic writings, which began on Wednesday November 21 and runs until Sunday December 16.

Branches in Waltham Forest will be promoting 30 titles from the genre as part of the event, which is organised by the Stellar Libraries group.

It comes following a sharp increase in sales of erotic fiction following the smash-hit success of EL James's novel '50 Shades of Grey'.
