Pullman on Public Libraries

I began to know and love crime fiction in the late 1970s when I borrowed a copy of Julian Symons’ history of the genre, Bloody Murder, from the Horsham public library in West Sussex. I still dip into it today.

Philip Pullman has made a stirring speech on the massive closures planned for the UK’s public libraries. It has become something of a viral sensation – articulate, passionate and inspirational stuff – you can access it online at this address:
