Eden Public Relations supports International School Library Month
12th October 2021
With October being the International School Library Month, Eden is supporting the local community and supporting schools in and around Nottinghamshire….
Here at Eden, we understand how important it is to be in touch with reading, writing and developing communication and social skills. The foundations of our whole public relations agency are based on this. Without reading, books, learning and libraries, we almost certainly wouldn’t even be here!
Some of the members of our team are parents to young children. They understand first-hand how vital it is to help develop children’s literacy and their enthusiasm for reading and writing. However, to keep motivating the kids, we realise as adults, we must keep reading, too!
At Eden PR, we are always thinking of ways that we can help schools and the development of younger children. We understand how important it is to invest in our future generations!
One idea we had and have put into place is trying to recycle, reuse, or any excess paper that we own. We send off surplus paper to a local school in Nottingham so that they can use it for their children’s learning activities.
One of our team members, Emily, has written her own children’s book about grammar, and is hoping to take it into schools and read to classes to help them learn more literacy, but in a fun and exciting way.
We are proud to say that Renee, a member of our team, has had her own book, A Doorstep Miracle, published already. This prompted us to have a think of Nottingham based authors and compile a list of some of our favourites here at Eden PR.
A book the Eden team recommends is a recent discovery from Isabel, our Managing Director, called Dead Flowers, by Nicola Monaghan. The story takes place in Nottingham and so many areas around the city stood out to us! This unpredictable, gripping novel is packed with unexpected surprises and some amazing thrills. Well worth a read!
Although not quite Nottingham based, a short story written by Richard Guise, Lead us not into Trent Station, is a novel looking back at life in a Midlands town. The book is packed with real-life characters from the 90’s and brings memories flooding back to those who grew up in Long Eaton. A real blast from the past!
Our final recommendation is Clare Harvey. Her published works include The Gunner Girl (winner of The Exeter Novel Prize and The Joan Hessayon Award for new fiction), and The Night Raid. An ex-army wife, she’s now settled in Nottingham with her family. She has a couple of amazing reads that our team says are great thrillers.
Whether you’re reading for yourself or encouraging your children to read, make sure you do on behalf of the school libraries worldwide. Happy reading!
