Led by Derby Libraries, The Reading Agency and BBC Arts

The Big Jubilee Read celebrates great reads from across the Commonwealth to coincide with the Jubilee.

An expert panel of librarians, booksellers and literature specialists has chosen 70 titles from a “readers’ choice” longlist with ten books for each decade of Her Majesty The Queen’s reign. The list offers brilliant, beautiful and thrilling writing produced by authors from a wide range of Commonwealth countries with the final list of titles to be announced in April. Reading Groups in Derby Libraries will be reading and reviewing a selection of these titles during May and June and then voting for their favourite books, with the winner revealed at the end of June.

This is available in the wider Derby Area, contact your local library to find out more.
