The Hub is celebrating its successful move to London Road by staging a celebration of reading in Reading on February 27th called A Novel Night. This session will involve looking back at a key event in the history of the NCLL; on Friday the 10th October 1997, the Reading Weekend POST ran an article entitled: ‘It’s the write stuff’ based on a visit by Ian Beck and organised by Prue Goodwin, who included a mock book award session.
On the evening of February 27th Ian Beck will be back at the University to launch the Learning Hub, and will be interviewed by Prue Goodwin, regarding this past event and the changes in reading and Reading since 1997, Prue will again stage a mock book award session.
Amongst the guest list will be many literacy heroes.
There will also be a display of archive material relating to Betty Root, the founder of the NCLL in 1967 with original letters and illustrations from many famous writers and illustrators.
We predict that this will be a very popular evening and tickets are limited. If you wish to attend please contact Karen (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more details.
