MP’s and Authors gather to celebrate an international success.

Wednesday, May 5, 2004

Meg Munn MP joined with some of Britain’s leading authors to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Public Lending Right.

 

Meg said, “I love reading, so I was really pleased to help celebrate the 25 year anniversary of a scheme that has helped support so many authors, and it was a real thrill for me to meet Fay Weldon, who’s books I have enjoyed reading.”

 

Not all authors are successful immediately and many of them have to survive on less than the national average wage.  The Public Lending Right recognises authors’ legal right to receive a fair return for the public’s free access to their work through public libraries, so giving authors much needed financial support.  The scheme has been so successful that it has gone international, with 17 countries adopting the system.
