It’s always brilliant seeing authors and illustrators within the Booked Out stable flourishing, and the lovely Lucinda Gifford is doing just that. We are very excited that Lucinda’s next book – which is not even published until November – Whitney and Britney Chicken Divas, (Scholastic) has already been selected by ALIA for National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) 2020!

Marking 20 years of NSS, the 2020 event will take place on Wednesday, 27 May as part of Library and Information Week, which runs from 25–29 May. We are hoping the 2020 National Simultaneous Storytime will break this year’s record which had more  than 1.1 million people participating across more than 11,000 locations (including readers in New Zealand, Thailand, UK, Canada, Singapore, Vietnam and Hong Kong, and had 1 in 28 people in Australia reading simultaneously.
