Devon Book for Summer initiative launched
11:33am Thursday 9th August 2012 in Devon
BOOK fans in Devon are being invited to take part in a unique countywide reading event this summer.
Devon County Council has teamed up with Transworld Publishers to launch the ‘Devon Book for Summer’ initiative, designed to encourage people across the county to read, review and share the same book over the summer period.
The ‘Devon Book for Summer’ this year is Rachel Joyce’s debut novel ‘The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry’. Chosen for its connection with Devon, the book’s unusual and moving story tells of an elderly man, Harold Fry, who leaves his home in Kingsbridge one morning to post a letter to a dying friend and unexpectedly sets out on a journey hundreds of miles from one end of the country to the other.
Readers can share their views on the book via the Devon News Centre at www.devonnewscentre.info
