We are delighted to be participating in the Big Jubilee Read….
The Big Jubilee Readis a reading for pleasure campaign celebrating great reads from across the Commonwealth to coincide with Her Majesty The Queen’s Jubilee. An expert panel of librarians, booksellers and literature specialists has chosen seventy titles from a “readers’ choice” longlist with ten books for each decade of Her Majesty The Queen’s reign. The list offers brilliant, beautiful and thrilling writing produced by authors from a wide range of Commonwealth countries over the last seventy years to engage all readers in the discovery and celebration of great books. The Big Jubilee Read campaign will be delivered in partnership with BBC Arts and The Reading Agency. It received funding from Arts Council England and is supported by Libraries Connected and the Booksellers Association.
