We are pleased to announce that Alexis Deacon has been appointed to the British Library Advisory Committee for Public Lending Right. Alexis is a writer and illustrator and his book Beegu was a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year and shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal. He recently contributed to a PLR video on the importance of registering for PLR.
The Advisory Committee was established to provide expert advice to the British Library on the operation of the UK PLR Scheme and to represent the views of PLR stakeholders. The Committee is made up of a Chair and six members: two members representing registered authors, two representing the public library community and two from the wider PLR constituency.
