Remember the moment when you first discovered books? For me it was like discovering magical windows that opened into different worlds, times and places.
As part of my role as a working writer I visit lots of schools to try and spark a love of reading and books in the next generation of readers and thinkers. Next Sunday (16th Sept 2012) I will be taking part in a Dragon-Boat Race to raise money for a small village school near where I live. Because of its size they do not have the economies of scale that larger schools enjoy. As a result things like new books for the library get bumped down the list a little. I’m aiming to bump them back up again. And you can help.
If you, dear reader, would like to help me pass on the magic of reading then you can donate to the collection. Every donation, no matter how small, will get entered into a raffle next Sunday and the winner will receive two hardback first editions of Sanctus and The Key, signed and dedicated to whomever you chose.
Thank you for making a difference to a child’s life.
