Best-selling authors unite to make the magic of reading accessible to all

Reading is Magic Festival aims to promote creativity and connection through stories and shared experiences. Taking place between Monday 26 – Friday 30 September 2022 the festival is free and is packed full of magical digital events that can be beamed straight into schools and homes, making it available for all to enjoy, wherever they may be.

Inspiration for the festival came from former Waterstones Children’s Laureate Cressida Cowell’s key message: ‘reading is magic, and magic is for everyone’ and this focus on inclusivity underpins the very essence of the festival.

Cressida Cowell adds: “Research shows that reading for the joy of it has powerful, measurable real-life benefits that can transform lives. This ‘magic’ ought to be available to everyone.”
