NO TO AGE BANDING is the protest group set up by Pullman et al to oppose the publishing industry's latest mad brainwave to print age recommendations on the back covers of books.

Read here Philip Pullman's address to the Society of Authors' Conference on Sunday. It's superb (IMO).

If you want to sign up to support them there are details on the front page of the site.

I had a lovely email from him personally a few months' back after I'd done a session on the subject with our school reading groups.

Thanks for the link Roisin; I've just had a browse but will read it properly tomorrow. It looks really interesting.
