There is a mood of quiet, but excited anticipation in The Reader Organisation’s offices this month. Our magazine, The Reader, is turning the big 5-0 soon! How will we celebrate? By publishing a beautiful bumper edition of the Issue 50 cover online versionmagazine, jam-packed with brilliant literature from all of the friends we’ve made over the years and from some new friends who have recently joined us.

We’re going to let you into a few secrets to whet your appetite before the 50th issue hits doormats all over the country. Birthday highlights includes:

  • Poetry from Blake Morrison, Connie Benseley, Les Murray, and more.
  •  A selection from The Reader archive including Doris Lessing, Carol Rumens and Howard Jacobson.
  •  Two memoirs: David Constantine’s Where I’m From and Priscilla Gilman’s The Anti-Romantic Child.
  • Frank Cottrell Boyce writes with humour and candour of his part in creating the amazing Olympics opening ceremony with Danny Boyle.
  • Founder Jane Davis is interviewed on the origins of the magazine.

This issue proves to be an extra-special one but while you wait, why not head over to our website to discover and purchase past issues of The Reader, to read some of the wonderful pieces of literature that have been published in the magazine over the years.

The Reader is life changing and has an almost evangelical belief in the power of change through the act of reading or simply the power of pleasure through reading” – Lemn Sissay
