'Mr. Stink' named the Read DL book
'MR. STINK' by author David Walliams has been named
this year’s book for Read DL 2019.
Read DL, which was officially launched last night
(28 February) in the Central Library in Letterkenny,
is a county-wide reading movement designed to bring
the people of Donegal together by collectively
reading the same book. It aims to foster a love of
reading and encourage people, both young and old, to
not only read more but to read the same book and to
share ideas and perspectives.
Hundreds of children and families across Donegal
will get to know Chloe, the loneliest girl in the
world who makes friends with Mr Stink, the local
tramp, as they participate in this six week project
that will see families and communities coming
together to rediscover the joy of reading and the
magical world of books.
