Pullman has called for a reintroduction of a minimum price for books, speaking to the Sunday Times this week. He wants to protect independent bookshops, particularly after independent booksellers criticised heavy discounts for La Belle Sauvage by bookselling giants in the UK such as Amazon, Tesco, and Waterstones, who are selling it for £10 insstead of the R.R.P. of £20.
As the Sunday Times is behind a paywall, you can read more about the issue with articles on the following sites:
This August, Chichester Festival Youth Theatre is performing Pullman’s retelling of Brothers Grimm tales. The performance has been adapted by Philip Wilson and is directed by Dale Rooks.
It will be performed at the Cass Sculpture Foundation on the Goodwood Estate in West Sussex, England from 4th to 19th August 2017. Tickets start at £25 and can be bought here.
