Dolly Parton Event with British Library
Dolly Parton aka ‘the Book Lady’ has announced a special one-off online event with the British Library.
The country megastar’s incredible work with promoting literacy is a triumph and should be celebrated.
Not content with just releasing a Christmas album she will also speak to Sara Cox on Wednesday 2 December online for this British Library special.
This could save 2020 and might just be the best way to spend a fiver we’ve ever known.
Get thee to the Bargain Store! And read yourselves some books y’all!
About Dolly Parton
“Multiple Grammy award-winning entertainment icon Dolly Parton is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, actor, author, businesswoman, the queen of country and a Glastonbury show-stopper. She was born in a one-room cabin on the banks of the Little Pigeon River in Tennessee, the fourth of 12 children. Her father was a sharecropper who couldn’t read or write, but Dolly credits him as the inspiration for her Imagination Library, a book gifting programme devoted to giving children a love of reading, with over 100 million books distributed so far. Dolly’s prodigious musical output includes such classics as 9 to 5, Coat of Many Colours, I will Always Love You and Jolene. She also loves libraries, a lot.”
