In this blog written for thebookseller.com, Alistair discusses the importance of making printed books accessible to readers with dyslexia, highlighting the joy of reading and the positive impact it can have on individuals. It emphasises the need for publishers to produce books in dyslexic-friendly formats, aiming for at least 1% of their adult output, and calls for wider support from the book industry and charities to promote reading for pleasure among dyslexic adults.
Alistair also shares personal experiences and success stories, advocating for inclusivity in literature and encouraging publishers to take part in the effort.
