#behindeverybook is a writer, translator or illustrator!

You may have seen this nice campaign running today by the European Writers’ Council, the Society of Authors and other international writers organisations for #WorldBookDay2022.

I haven’t seen so many UK colleagues joining in. But I like the idea, so am posting here and on my other social media ICYMI and in solidarity with bookish friends everywhere. Especially wherever writers are being persecuted right now.

PS join English PEN or the local branch where you are, if you haven’t already!

Or use the hashtag #behindeverybook yourself ;)
