Our eighteenth Book Dash took place the 18th of September this year and a selection of talented, generous creatives made beautiful new books in a 12 hour sprint, and help us ensure that every child owns a hundred books by the age of five!
Watch the Storytime recording from the end of the day below, and if you’d like to apply to take part in the next event, keep an eye out for future calls by joining our mailing list or following our social media pages @bookdash.
We look forward to creating new books on the 18th September with the incredible cohort of creatives below, situated in 7 countries across the world. Thank you to CourierIT for sponsoring the delivery of their special Book Dash hampers!
Follow us on social media for more information. We’re at @bookdash on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
After the event, we’ll translate, print and distribute copies of these books to children for free, in line with our vision that “Every child should own a hundred books by the age of five.”
This event is made possible by the Liberty Community Trust. Thank you to all who are making it possible for us to make beautiful new books!
