A multitude of young people emerging from Central Library. Heads held high. Hands by their sides. A single book tucked safely under their right arm.

A curious flashmob event to celebrate the start of the Word festival, co-produced by the All Change 'B' Project for young women and Islington Community Theatre and supported by Oberon Books.
