litopiaThe Library Campaign features in an internet radio debate on quirky station Litopia, alongside author and campaigner Alan Gibbons.

Laura Swaffield, Chair of the Library Campaign, says,

‘The debate was sparked by the daft anti-library comments made by Terry Deary, writer of the Horrible History books.

Terry has been shot down in flames all over the press and the net, and has gone to ground. I think he realises he has made a fool of himself.

So instead we had our friend the wonderful children’s writer Alan Gibbons – broadcasting from his hotel bedroom in Hong Kong at 4am local time!”
