The fantastic children’s author & illustrator, Adam Stower, has given his support to The Book Activist.
“I met Victoria during her time as school librarian when she invited me to visit the school and talk to the children about my work as an author and illustrator of children’s books. I thoroughly enjoyed the day. It was clear to see how Victoria’s passion for books had instilled in the children a delightful and enthusiastic love of reading.
In her capacity as the Book Activist, I have no doubt that she will help many more children engage with books and become passionate about reading for pleasure, which can only ever be a wonderful thing. It is all the more important in the current climate that there are people such as Victoria on hand to share their extensive knowledge and experience with those who require it. With the difficulties that many public libraries are facing these days, people such as The Book Activist, who share a passionate commitment to introducing children to the wonders of reading, are becoming all the more essential and valuable.”
Adam’s award winning books have delighted children and adults alike and he also works collaboratively illustrating books written by authors such as Jeanne Willis. You can read a review of his latest picture book ‘Grumbug’ on the Bookshelf and find out more about Adam at www.worldofadam.com.
