Each month we're going to introduce you to one of our fantastic Reading Activists. This month, we'd like you to meet Jake. Sixteen year old Jake has been a member of Reading Activists in Warrington since it started in 2011. He particularly enjoys author events and has recently had a key role in organising events with Curtis Jobling, Gregg Olsen and Tim Quinn.
We had a chat to Jake to find out more about his Reading Activist experience.
