‘Books about Town’

The National Literacy Trust, in partnership with Wild in Art, have commissioned a series of book benches to be designed by artists to celebrate stories connected to London and promote reading for pleasure.  The open book shaped benches will be unveiled in locations across London next summer.

The Trust are inviting businesses to sponsor a BookBench in order to raise money to help tackle low literacy levels in deprived communities across the UK.  Among the benches already being created are We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and Peter Pan.
