We would like to invite you, your family, friends, neighbours and colleagues to celebrate with us at Jubilee Library on April 23 from 5.30 – 7.30pm.
This year we are promoting the event throughout the city to encourage everyone (whether they currently use their local library or not) to join in, be part of a community of readers and explore what libraries have to offer.
During the course of the evening you will be able to:
- Find out about local author Bethan Roberts experiences as a City Reads author and her new book: Mother Island. Bethan will be in conversation with local poet, Rosy Carrick
- Be one of the first to know the title of this year’s City Read
- Enter quizzes and competitions to win fantastic book prizes
Celebrate your love of reading and everything books!
The event is free, no booking required.

About City Reads: http://cityreads.co.uk/
City Reads is an annual citywide reading festival which aims to spread a love of books and ideas to the widest possible audience throughout Brighton & Hove. The concept is simple: selecting one book by one author for the whole community to read, discuss, debate and creatively engage with in a series of special events, workshops and performances.
