CITY READS 2017 (02 March -14 May)
City Reads is an annual citywide reading festival which aims to spread a love of books and ideas to the widest possible audience across Brighton & Hove. The concept is simple: one book by one author is selected for the whole community to read, discuss, debate and creatively engage with in a series of special events, workshops and performances.
City Reads takes place during March and May, with the final event being part of Brighton Festival. The book is announced in advance so you have plenty of time to read the chosen title before the events programme.
Events take place across the whole city – in libraries, arts venues, community centres, bookshops…
City Reads is for everyone: it doesn’t matter what you do, where you live or what you read, City Reads is about opening up the world of words and ideas to everyone and get the whole city reading and talking. All you need to do is pick up a copy from your local library, bookshop or book drop point and start reading…
