The Book Fairies were given a great brief for this new paperback. The Lido by Libby Page was to be hidden around swimming pools and any other areas of water to attract outdoor swimmers!
The UK fairies had so much fun with this novel and saw lots of ‘book found’ posts too! We found lidos, pools, ponds and canals beside which to hide the books.
About the book:
Meet Rosemary, 86, and Kate, 26: dreamers, campaigners, outdoor swimmers… Rosemary has lived in Brixton all her life, but everything she knows is changing.
Only the local lido, where she swims every day, remains a constant reminder of the past and her beloved husband George.
Kate has just moved and feels adrift in a city that is too big for her.
She’s on the bottom rung of her career as a local journalist, and is determined to make something of it.
So when the lido is threatened with closure, Kate knows this story could be her chance to shine.
But for Rosemary, it could be the end of everything.
