Young City Reads 2018


Presenting this year’s BIG READ for schools in Brighton & Hove (and beyond) . . .

Kid Normal by Greg James and Chris Smith

Read it together between 01 March and 18 May 2018


Young City Reads returns this year with a spoof superhero epic that’s both fabulously funny and heart-warming. The concept is simple – one book, by one author is selected for classes to read, explore, discuss and creatively engage with.

Sign up and from March – May get:

>  FREE weekly Kid Normal resources 
>  FREE e-bulletins with points for discussion, fun facts and more 
>  Early bird discount on tickets to see the authors LIVE at the YCR Brighton Festival event 

All you need to do is purchase copies of the book, and Book Nook, Hove are offering participating schools 20% off the titles and free delivery.

We know that Brighton is full of superpowers: seagull evasion, shingle navigation and dolphin racing, to name but three. And now we’re looking forward to adding a few new ones with the help of your awesome powers of creativity. We hope you enjoy meeting Murph and his friends in Kid Normal, and we can’t wait to meet you all to make up some new stories!
