We are thrilled to announce that Stanfords Bristol will be one of the bookshops participating in the BA/Egmont Eager Readers project, established earlier this year as part of the Bookseller’s Association Diversity & Inclusivity initiative.
The six-week summer reading project aims to inspire reading for pleasure through allowing children to choose their own books and encouraging parents to read to their child on a daily basis. We’ll be working with a primary school in the city centre to sign up local families with a child between the ages of 7 and 11 who is reluctant to read and with parents who find it difficult to make time to read to their child.
