Bertrams supports World Book Day

Thursday 7th March 2013

Today is World Book Day. In the build-up to this years’ event it has been a busy one for Bertrams, who have distributed a wealth of World Book Day material to all their library customers, and supplied over 225,000 books to independent booksellers.

As in previous years, an excellent range of £1 books will be available for children aged 2-11 including books by top authors including Francesca Simon, Lauren Child, Anthony Horowitz and Shirley Hughes.

Schools across the country will be distributing £1 vouchers, which can be exchanged for the specially commissioned £1 books, or as money off in participating booksellers. Other activities taking place on the day include ‘The Biggest Show On Earth’ – a free online festival starring nine authors and illustrators including Lauren Child, Shirley Hughes and Tony Robinson, streamed live into classrooms across the country.

Children’s Category Manager at Bertrams, Cat Banks said:

"Book shops up and down the country will be holding events to celebrate. World Book Day is getting bigger every year, and Bertrams can’t wait to celebrate! I spent last week with publishers and retailers selecting the titles for 2014, so I know next year is going to be great, as well!’
