To celebrate National Reading Group Day on 20 June 2015, in partnership with The Booksellers Association, we are launching a hunt for the debut author that the UK's reading groups most want to read and champion this year.
A stellar cast of much-loved authors including Lynda La Plante, David Almond, Elif Shafak, Sarah Winman, Elizabeth Fremantle and Annabel Pitcher have so far been confirmed to headline our World Book Night flagship event in London on 23 April 2015.
Today has seen the launch of The Power of Reading a report aimed at the next government and prepared on behalf of the Read On Get On campaign. Our CEO, Sue Wilkinson, highlights the main points and lends The Reading Agency's support to its recommendations.
