Members of the Alberto Diaz de la Quintana theatre company in Malaga have come up with a novel way to encourage people, especially the young, to read more. This summer they will be visiting the city’s beaches dressed up as characters out of well known books. They are currently masquerading as Captain Nemo and Neptune to get people to read Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues under the Sea. Actress Sandra Segura said: “You’d be surprised at the number of kids who take a book with them to the beach.” People who can show the actors a book will get a small gift. Julia Luque, who coordinates the project, said: “The idea is to award readers and encourage the rest of the public to read on the beach.”
