The joy of reading

Lucy Caldwell is an inspired choice to front this year's One City One Book initiative in Belfast.

If her latest novel garners similar reviews to her previous work then those who will read it during May are in for a treat. She was a deserved winner of this newspaper's Woman of the Year in the Arts award and this latest accolade shows her rising stock.

One City One Book – which this newspaper supports – is a way of getting people interested in reading. In today's frantic world, just taking time to sit down and read a few pages can be a real joy. Pick up a copy of Lucy's book, All the Beggars Riding, and see what we mean.
