To mark the 10th anniversary of Stripes Publishing and to raise money and awareness for Crisis, a homeless charity, an anthology called ‘I’ll Be Home for Christmas’ will be released in September. Each story will revolve around the theme of ‘home’.
The authors are: Tom Becker, Holly Bourne, Sita Brahmachari, Kevin Brooks, Melvin Burgess, Katy Cannon, Cat Clarke, Tracy Darnton, Juno Dawson, Julie Mayhew, Non Pratt, Marcus Sedgwick, Lisa Williamson and Benjamin Zephaniah. Talk about an amazing line-up!
Are you ready to see the cover? It’s illustrated by William Grill and it’s GORGEOUS.
At least £1 from each sale will go to Crisis and Stripes has committed to giving at least £10, 000 to the cause. What a cool bunch.
‘I’ll Be Home for Christmas’ will be published in paperback by Stripes on 22nd September.
