As the 28th April was Terry Pratchett’s birthday, we want to reclaim the day for him and we hope you’ll join us! We’d like to make Terry Pratchett Day a time to remember and celebrate the author who ignited our imaginations and made us all laugh so much…
“I am never not reading a Terry Pratchett book. I’ve developed the habit of finishing one and then reading the first few pages of the next one. That way, I always know whatever happens in life, I have a Terry Pratchett book on the go and ergo, nothing can be too bad.”
