“Keep reading. It's one of the most marvellous adventures that anyone can have.” 

Lloyd Alexander

The Book Activist was founded by Victoria Dilly, who uses her wide-ranging experience gained from working as a school librarian for ten years and as a programme manager for the UK’s leading national literacy charity, to empower children and young people to discover a lifelong love of stories.

Through a range of activities and services The Book Activist:


  • Encourages children to develop a love for stories.

  • Provides families with ideas to help children get into reading and creative writing.

  • Supports schools in developing a reading culture in their communities.

  • Works with authors, publishers, literary organisations to promote reading.


"There is no one I would trust more to get every child reading for life."
