#LovetoRead

A BBC event at Hay

Venue: BBC Tent

This year the BBC launched the #LovetoRead campaign to celebrate the pleasures of reading. Jonty Claypole, BBC Director of Arts, will chair an event to explain the campaign, preview some of the BBC's programmes that are supporting it and talk to authors about the books that have changed their lives and ask them to share their strategies for persuading reluctant readers to pick up a novel. Novelists include Owen Sheers and Deborah Moggach.
