National Literacy Trust

Since collaborating on Books about Town in London in 2014 we’ve worked with the National Literacy Trust on campaigns featuring our BookBench sculpture across the country to promote reading for enjoyment. These include The Big Read in the West Midlands as well as Read Manchester.

Plans are underway to bring a striking trail of book-shaped benches to Stoke-on-Trent in 2019, as part of the Stoke Reads campaign.

The National Literacy Trust is an independent charity dedicated to raising literacy levels in the UK. It’s research and analysis make it the leading authority on literacy. The trust runs projects in the poorest communities, campaign to make literacy a priority for politicians and parents, and support schools.
