Behind the Cover


Throughout the summer, we will be celebrating books written by bestselling writers who put women at the heart of their stories.

Behind the Cover will feature a new audiobook every month alongside activities and exclusive content to help start a conversation about the book.

You can join discussions about the book on Instagram @ZoneIn_Skills using the hashtag #BehindtheCoverClub, and send us your book reviews. We will publish a selection every month.

We are finding ways to fill our time during lockdown and we hope that you find some comfort in these stories. Research shows that listening to audiobooks can support your wellbeing.

Behind the Cover is for all women and non-binary readers aged 16 and over.
