Inspiring Older Readers
An Interview With Francesco Dimitri
The Letterpress Project has asked authors and illustrators to think about what has inspired them as artists, what their favourite books are and how they relate to their audience - we've also asked them if they themselves are book collectors.
We are delighted to present an interview by author, Francesco Dimitri. Francesco tells us that he "is an Italian author living in London" and that he "has written fiction and non-fiction and worked for top business clients". Francesco also insists that he is a member of "the faculty of the School of Life".
He has recently edited an anthology of readings called To Read Aloud which the Director of the Letterpress Project used to good effect with residents of an elderly care home - you can read more about that on this link.
