Exciting news! I have the go ahead for my R.F.U. England Rugby tour of public libraries during August 2015.
The tour will take in thirteen libraries, each close to one of the thirteen venues where the 2015 Rugby World Cup will begin the following month.
Not everything is decided yet, but the tour will include one of my Rugby World Cup Reading Games in the library. And more. Much more.
These are the dates with venue cities and towns:
Week one: the South East
11 East London
14 Milton Keynes
Week two: the Midlands, the South West and Wales
Week three: the North
I have a few other ideas to enhance the tour. More news to follow about them. As well as venues and times.
The R.F.U. are funding the tour entirely. A HUGE thank you to England Rugby for supporting public libraries and the reading for pleasure agenda. I think they deserve massive credit for this.
