Hodder will launch the programme with a new edition of Love Story in February 2013 for Valentine’s Day, with an online social media campaign centring on the legacy of that book and introducing it to the millions of readers who will know its iconography ‘Love means never having to say you’re sorry’ without knowing its source.
