A Fresh Start for Quick Reads
Morning! Some really lovely news: the Reading Agency has relaunched its Quick Reads campaign and announced its stories for 2020! In case you don't know, Quick Reads is a project that promotes adult literacy (one in six adults struggles with reading in the UK). You may remember that funding was withdrawn a few years ago and Jojo Moyes stepped in to save the project - what a rock star! Well, I'm honoured and thrilled to be a part of the 2020 list - I've contributed a short story to a collection called A Fresh Start, alongside shorts by stars like Ian Rankin and Sophie Kinsella. Novels include The Donor by Clare Mackintosh and The Little Dreams of Lara Cliffe by Milly Johnson and each book is just £1. You can read more about Quick Read and please help spread the word - the more of us who support this, the greater the life opportunities for everyone. Thank you x
I'll be leaving my postcode on NUMEROUS occasions in September and October to talk about Those People. If I'm in your neck of the woods, please come along and we'll talk neighbours we love to hate (among other subjects)...
