This July marks 50 years since the creation of the Sexual Offences Act of 1967, which partially decriminalised homosexual acts between men in England and Wales and helped give birth to the modern LGBTQ rights movement in the UK. Sarah Waters is well known for her contribution to LGBTQ literature – she has won two Stonewall ‘Writer of the Year’ awards and in 2016 was presented with the British LGBT Awards‘ Lifetime Achievement Award.
To celebrate this momentous anniversary, and to coincide with the UK’s summer Pride events, Sarah’s entire ebook collection will be available for just £2.99 per novel. Go back to the book that put Sarah Waters on the map, the sensational Tipping the Velvet, delve into Orange and Booker prize nominated The Night Watch or read her most recent masterpiece, The Paying Guests.
This celebration is part of a wider promotion across Little, Brown Book Group’s various imprints. To find out more, and share what you’re reading, follow #LB50 throughout July.
