The Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival went back on tour this Summer with the 10th Big Read. The free reading group events were led by award-winning author Mari Hannah and delved into the world of James Patterson’s Detective Cross novel Along Came a Spider.

Thanks to a partnership with Penguin Random House UK and James Patterson, the Festival was able to distribute free copies of the Big Read book via our partner libraries.

The Big Read will return for it’s 11th year in 2019. Join our mailing list to receive the latest news and
