World Book Day Director joins BookMachine event line-up

World Book Day

A new speaker has just been announced for How technology can make reading fun. Kirsten Grant will join Matt Deegan, Louie Stowell and Sven Huber in London on 17th May. Each will each be looking at different ways to engage young people online to make reading fun. There will be plenty of time for questions too.

For the past six years Kirsten, has been Director of World Book Day, the biggest trade-wide celebration of children’s books and reading in the UK and Ireland, that works closely with schools, bookshops and libraries to encourage children of all ages to read for pleasure. 

This event is aimed at educational publishers, children’s publishers, teachers, YA bloggers, librarians and anyone else interested in how we can keep reading alive!
