Literary Travels

Literary Travels is our latest project that we have received Arts Council England funding for. We are really excited to be able to bring a further 7 titles of contemporary literature in translation to the print disabled community.

As part of the project we will be posting updates on the projects progress via Twitter and the home page below.

Audio Book Survey

CVE are looking to the future. We understand the need to better connect with our readers. To this end, we have created a survey to try to help us understand how our readers access reading material, what aspects of audio are important to them, their prefered methods of buying or obtaining books, and how they engage with social media.

As a way of thanking those who fill the survey in we are offering the opportunity to enter a prize draw where you could be a winner of one of ten books chosen from the CVE catalogue. Please follow the link below to start the survey.

Access the audio book survey here.
