To celebrate National Reading Group Day on 20 June 2015, national charity The Reading Agency, in partnership with The Booksellers Association, is launching a hunt for the debut author that the UK’s reading groups most want to read and champion this year.
To start the search for the newcomer of 2015, publishers who are members of The Reading Agency’s partnership programme – which brings libraries and publishers into a closer relationship for successful and exciting reading promotions, activities and events in communities across the country – are invited to nominate recent titles by debut writers which they would like to share with reading groups to inspire them to discover something different.
The deadline for nominations from publishers is 17 April. Publishers are asked to nominate one title of fiction or narrative non-fiction per imprint, which has been published in paperback between June 2014 and June 2015. For details of how to submit titles publishers should contact email@example.com
