Gogglebox stars help launch latest literary anthology
To celebrate the publication of A Little Aloud with Love, the latest anthology in their A Little Aloud series, The Reader will be holding a launch event at Waterstones Liverpool One on Thursday 11 February, 6:30pm-8pm.
The event is being hosted by BBC Radio Merseyside’s Roger Phillips and features Channel 4’s Gogglebox stars and Liverpool lovebirds June and Leon.
A Little Aloud With Love is available now from store and online retailers including www.thereader.org.uk and would make the perfect Valentine’s gift. The anthology is designed to be read aloud to a loved one and features popular selections from writers across time – from Shakespeare and Shelley to Haruki Murakami and Wendy Cope.
Tickets to the A Little Aloud With Love launch on 11 February are £3 each and can be bought on the door or in advance by ringing Waterstones Liverpool One on 0151 709 9820. Live music and readings will make for a magical evening for romantics young and old.
Dr Jane Davis, Director & Founder of The Reader said: “It’s fantastic to have Liverpool’s favourite couple June and Leon with us to celebrate the launch of A Little Aloud With Love. Our publishers Chatto & Windus are donating all royalties to The Reader, so anyone who buys a copy will be supporting our work running Shared Reading groups across the UK – enough to give anyone that warm fuzzy feeling!”
