City Reads

Brighton & Hove’s BIG READ for adults

CITY READS 2019 (23 April -12 May)

We are delighted to announce that the 2019 chosen book is, Let Me Be Like Water by S.K. Perry. FIND OUT MORE on our CITY READS 2019 PAGE

City Reads is an annual BIG READ for adults, which aims to spread a love of books and ideas to the widest possible audience across Brighton & Hove (and beyond). 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 between April and May each year and there is always a final, closing event with the author as part of Brighton Festival. The book is usually announced in February, giving readers plenty of time to grab a copy of the book and read it before the programme of related events starts.

Events take place across the whole city – in libraries, arts venues, cafes, community centres and bookshops.

City Reads is for everyone: it doesn’t matter what you do, where you live or what you like reading. City Reads is about opening up the world of words and ideas to everyone. We want to get the whole city reading, talking and sharing their experience of the book. All you need to do is pick up a copy from your local library or bookshop and start reading…
