I'm delighted to be one of the many authors supporting Empathy Day on June 13th
What is Empathy Day?
Empathy Day is a platform to emphasise the importance of empathy in our divided world and raise awareness of the power of stories to develop it.The Day is being launched by EmpathyLab, a new organisation with a mission to use stories to help us understand each other better, led by Miranda McKearney OBE, founder of The Reading Agency.
I'll be headung off to the lovely Spinney Primary School in Cambridge to join in their activities. I can't wait!
