In February, Trustees agreed to postpone the appointment of a Director, in order to review Charleston’s requirements for this vitally important role.
We are extremely fortunate to have Alistair Burtenshaw in place as Interim Director following Colin McKenzie’s departure and Alistair will be with the trust until at least June 2013.
Alistair has a literary background, having been Director of The London Book Fair for twelve years. Alistair is also Chair of the Trustees of Booktrust, the UK’s leading independent literacy charity.
