Things to do, Literary events Free
Get Reading Festival
Jeremy Selwyn
This free literary event is taking over Trafalgar Square to spread the joys of reading with the help of authors, actors and a giant read-a-thon. Rupert Everett will be reading an Oscar Wilde fairytale, stars from 'Billy Elliot the Musical' will be performing a number, and there'll be a reading from Mark Haddon’s book 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time'. Other contributors include Anthony Horowitz, novelist Sally Gardner, actor Warwick Davis, author Marianne Levy, author Steve Cole, actor Sam West, and children's author Anne Fine. The one-day reading event has been organised by London paper the Evening Standard together with reading tablet brand NOOK. See for more information.
