FOUNDED IN FICTION / EXPERIENCED IN LIFE
Novel North came into being one blustery afternoon. Browsing through some old family albums, I noticed many of the photos were of my brother, sister and I standing atop a windswept hill, charging through the woods, or paddling in the sea in the pouring rain. I couldn’t help smiling to myself. No matter the weather, we were always out of doors, exploring.
When we were young children, my parents loved reading to us. All of Enid Blyton’s Famous Five series, the Rupert the Bear annuals, Tintin stories. So many wondrous adventures awaited us between the pages in the evenings. And on the weekends, those adventures were brought to life…
Reading and adventuring are intertwined. Books ignite our imaginations, challenging us to broaden our horizons - experience the world in new and exciting ways. The hope of Novel North is to extend the adventure beyond the page and to build a community around our mutual love of stories and adventures.
