Heywood Hill, the London bookshop that operates a personalised monthly book subscription, has launched a uniquely altruistic prize draw for book-lovers across the world.
A regular supply of well-chosen books has been a lifeline for many Heywood Hill customers during 2020. Now the famous bookshop is offering people around the world the chance to change the reading life of one lucky book-lover forever.
Heywood Hill today launches a free to enter prize draw with an altruistic twist. Nominate someone else to win a hand-picked hardback book a month for life, anywhere in the world, and explain why.
Nicky Dunne, Director at Heywood Hill said, ‘We want to offer a life changing literary prize to someone who deserves to be acknowledged this year. Everyone has struggled this year, and many people have gone out of their way to put others first. It could be someone who has kept the family show on the road, or a friend in need, the nurse who looked after you, the neighbour who delivers groceries, the parent who has bravely home-schooled, or a child stuck at home who loves to read. We want to hear about deserving book-lovers from all over the world.’
Camille Van de Velde, Head of Subscriptions at Heywood Hill said, ‘we operate the most tailored monthly book subscription in the world and we have remained defiantly operational throughout this challenging year. Our subscribers in over 50 countries keep in regular touch with our very talented booksellers, each of whom read a great many books a year. Our subscribers tell us just how much it has meant to them to receive well-chosen books month in month out during the pandemic. One said their parcel was ‘a ray of light amid the gloom’. Now we are going to light up the reading life of someone who deserves a lifelong nourishing literary treat’.
Who do you think deserves to win this spectacular prize? To enter visit www.heywoodhill.com and nominate a person to win this staggering prize, and there is the option to explain why. The winner will be drawn at random in November and they will be notified thereafter. This incredible free to enter prize draw ends at midnight on Sunday 8 November 2020.
This prize draw was inspired by Heywood Hill’s legendary and uniquely personalised monthly book subscription.
