Big Read | 3-14 June 2019

Across the Northhome of crime

The Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival will go back on tour this Summer with the 11th Big Read!

Mari Hannah, author, Programming Chair, and Reader in Residence at the 2019 Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival, will hit the road to host the North’s biggest book club. She’ll be discussing thriller The Black Echo by Michael Connelly.

The Big Read, supported by The Arts Council, aims to encourage crime fiction fans, and entice reluctant readers, to read and discuss the same book. It offers opportunities for social meet-ups, making new friends and meeting like minds.

Thanks to his publisher, Orion, 1,500 free copies of the book are available and can be collected at any participating library or the Harrogate International Festival Office from April onwards.

The Big Read will take place in libraries across Yorkshire and the North East from June 3-14 and is completely free of charge.
