2019 marks Faber and Faber’s ninetieth anniversary as publishers of distinctive literature, shaping as well as reflecting our times through books and ideas. As they celebrate those years – with seven Booker Prize wins, thirteen Nobel Laureates, poets and playwrights, musicians, biographers, journalists, illustrators and authors published under the Faber name – they remain committed to bringing you the best in independent thinking and publishing over the next ninety years and beyond.
To celebrate, Faber have created a pack to help public libraries host their own ‘Faber Ninetieth’ celebration. They would love you to celebrate their ninetieth with them!
There are 250 anniversary packs available which include:
- Presenter (information about the 90th anniversary and how to join in with the celebration)
- Activity Sheets x 6 (3 for children, 3 for adults)
- A Shelf talker pack of 5
- 1x Double sided poster
- 1x ‘Our Favourites’ sticker sheet (which you can place on any Faber books in your library to distinguish those that mean the most to you and your readers.)
- Pack of 5 postcards
This is strictly one pack per public library. If you are ordering more than one pack (to disperse to other libraries in your region) you need to also email Kimberley.Sheehan@readingagency.org.uk to notify her of the individual library names that the packs will be used at. Alternatively, you can do individual orders for each library in the shop.
You can order the packs until 23 January but they may sell out before this date.
Please note, if you order a pack you are agreeing to use the materials within your library and to share photos of the group using them on social media using #Faber90 and tagging @FaberBooks and @readingagency. You will also send feedback of how you used the provided materials by 22 April. Please do not order the pack if you cannot commit to this. If you do not provide feedback then this may affect your orders in the future.
The publisher will be dispatching your resources. They will receive a dispatch list with your contact name and work address (which you give) for delivery. They will only deliver the pack requested and the dispatch list will then be deleted after the packs have been sent.
