- About Girls’ Night In
The Girls’ Night In and Kids’ Night In series has raised over $3.5 million for the charity War Child since the series first began in 2000. During that time, contributors including Stella McCartney and J.K.Rowling have joined the efforts of hundreds of talented and generous authors, artists and entertainers in this groundbreaking series of books, represented by Jonathan Lloyd and Tara Wynne at Curtis Brown.
The books – described by Elle magazine as ‘An enchanting and insightful collection featuring anyone who’s anyone’ will be released in new digital editions, published by HarperCollins in Britain and Penguin in Australia, in 2014. The new e-book and e-story version of the famous series will be edited by Jessica Adams, Maggie Alderson, Imogen Edwards-Jones and Nick Earls.
Jessica Adams is a former patron and trustee of War Child in Australia and Britain, and has been a team editor on every book in the Kids’ Night In and Girls’ Night In series.
‘In 2013 I met Clare Mirabello from War Child Australia in Sydney, and Elisabeth Little, Ben Knowles, Charlotte Reichwald and Rob Williams from War Child UK in London to talk about the new digital series. Rob Williams, CEO of War Child UK, explained that there was a great need for funds which were unrestricted. In other words, if emergencies appeared, War Child could use these ready funds to help children on the ground in war zones, without delay. As the situation in Syria reaches crisis point at the end of 2013 (and it will continue in 2014, with the United Nations estimating 1 million children are affected) there has never been a more urgent need for the Girls’ Night In series to raise funds again – and just one book or download will make all the difference.”
