Matt Haig’s THE HUMANS chosen for City Reads 2015 10th Anniversary year
2015 marks the 10th anniversary of City Reads and makes it the longest running ‘big read’ in the UK! We’re delighted to be sharing such a fantastic book with the city (and beyond).
YOUNG CITY READS LAUNCH ANTICS ON WORLD BOOK DAY!
Young City Reads 2015 launched at Jubilee Library on World Book Day (5 March) with some exciting drama workshops for Year 4 classes from St Bartholomew’s and St Martin’s schools and free scoops of Boho Gelato’s YCR fundraising ice cream flavour – Big Top Banan(z)a!
Brighton Festival has launched! Curated by Ali Smith, this year’s festival has many shows, big and small to bring our city alive during the month of May. Young City Reads has its very own LIVE event to celebrate the book in all its circussy glory ; with the author, William Sutcliffe and illustrator David Tazzyman taking centre stage for a live, interactive schools event to talk about this thrilling book and tell us more about Shanks’ Impossible Circus and how it came to be! You can view and book tickets to the event here.
This Spring primary classes across Brighton & Hove (and beyond!) have signed up to read Circus of Thieves and the Raffle of Doom by William Sutcliffe as part of Brighton’s only ‘big read’ for children. The project launches on World Book Day. Click the link above to find out more!
This autumn we’ve launched a new Read Aloud group at Portslade library for young people, using e-readers and e-books instead of paperbacks. This drop-in session takes place every Tuesday in term time from 3.30-5pm. Click the link above to find out more!
