The biggest celebration of crime writing in the world will once again tour libraries across the North of England this June with the annual 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. 2019 will be the 11th Big Read.

Free copies of the book have been supplied by publisher Orion and will be available from all participating libraries and the Harrogate Festival Box Office! Contact us for more information.
