Young City Reads Celebration 2018

WOWeeeeeee! What a Young City Reads that was!

75 classes across Brighton, Hove and BEYOND (yes, this year we welcomed Young City Readers from as far away as Zimbabwe HIYA *waves* !) all read, discussed and laughed TOGETHER over 2018’s epic title KID NORMAL by Greg James and Chris Smith.  

‘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!’

You know the drill… 10 weeks of reading, exploring and taking part in some brilliant booky activities, before attending the grand finale celebration event at Brighton Dome – want to take a peek? Expect a random child selector in a top hat, a teacher transforming into an evil DNA scientist, a MILLION* children raising the roof of the Brighton Dome because they LOVE READING.
