Ulverscroft has acquired the large print, audio and download rights to Captain Tom Moore’s autobiography, Tomorrow Will Be a Good Day.
Penguin Random House announced in May that Michael Joseph would be publishing the autobiography of the centenarian in hardback, e-book and audio on 17th September 2020. He has raised £32.8m to date for NHS charities by completing 100 laps around his garden for his 100th birthday. As well as covering the Walk for the NHS campaign, the memoir will explore his experiences as a former British Army officer.
Ulverscroft managing director Michele Petty said: “Ulverscroft is proud and excited to have been able to acquire the rights to Tomorrow Will Be a Good Day in both large print, audio and download formats. To be able to share Captain Tom’s life so far, will be an honour and a privilege.”
Ulverscroft will also have exclusive rights to sell the book to libraries across the world. It will release the large print, audio, and library download versions later in 2020 with a donation of each sale going towards Captain Tom Moore’s foundation.
