A Little, Aloud: OUT NOW!

Written by The Reader, 30th September 2010

A Little, Aloud (ed. by Angela Macmillan) is available to buy online (from Amazon and Waterstone's, plus others...), and in bookstores across the UK from today! We hope that the book brings you, and those that you read it aloud with, great enjoyment and treasured moments. Please leave us comments here on our blog telling your stories about who you've been reading it with and where - we'd love you to share those special moments with us.

Below are a few photographs from last night's launch event in Waterstone's Liverpool ONE. We were joined by Alan Yates (Chief Executive, Mersey Care NHS Trust) who spoke warmly and genuinely about the huge benefits of Get Into Reading both in the trust and for him personally, and Janet Suzman who read two poems from A Little, Aloud and told us how she is having the time of her life directing Antony and Cleopatra at Liverpool's Playhouse theatre:

Angela Macmillan, Alan Yates, Janet Suzman (reading), Jane Davis (and some low evening sunlight!)

It's really here... and flying off the shelves already!
