Read all about it - Book Week NI

Book Week NI (29 October – 4 November) is a joint initiative between BBC Northern Ireland and Libraries NI to share the message that books and reading are for everyone. A week of radio programmes and online activity will encourage audiences to get involved.

The public is invited to share their book-shaped stories and experiences on air, online and on social media. Book lovers can share a photo of their favourite book or even their book collection using #bookweekni

Radio Ulster/Foyle programmes include interviews with authors, visits to libraries and other interesting pieces. Online there will be animations and videos including a series of new short films involving local personalities talking about books that changed their lives and their childhood favourites.

CCEA offers an A Level English Literature revised specification, first teaching September 2016, which provides learners with the opportunity to engage creatively and critically with a substantial body of texts from the canon of English Literature. This includes a choice of six Shakespearean plays along with texts by more modern writers across a range of novels, plays and poetry. Find out more about the revised specification here:
