Commenting on the appointment of Dame Gail Rebuck to the House of Lords, Richard Mollet, the Chief Executive of The PA said:

“This peerage is a richly deserved honour.  Dame Gail Rebuck’s work in promoting adult literacy with the founding of Quick Reads, her support for booksellers as a driving force behind the Books Are My Bag campaign, and her leadership role in the Cheltenham Book Festival demonstrate her leadership not just to the commercial side of publishing, but also its wider social context.

“We look forward to continuing to work with Dame Gail in her Parliamentary role.”
