The official launch for the programme was held last Friday, when representatives from major publishing houses were briefed on the programme’s format and content. Page Turners will consist of eight weekly programmes, each featuring three books. Each book will have a celebrity advocate, and there will also be audience participation. The programmes will be presented by Jeremy Vine. Each publishing house may submit up to five titles for consideration, before the 3 December deadline.
