Summer Reading

Wed 5 Jul, 2017

Each year, we link up with our fellow UNESCO Cities of Literature to bring you a reading fiesta...

Becoming a UNESCO City of Literature is about becoming part of a global network of cities, each a centre of international literary excellence, handpicked by UNESCO. 

We're delighted to work with other cities, and there is a constant process of sharing ideas, inspiring each other and designing cross-city projects that bring us closer together as nations, as cities, as people. 

Each year, we like to select a book from our respective cities, a book that not only is a great summer read, but brings our cities to life. Here are our fellow UNESCO City of Literature choices: a highly eclectic mix of wonderful words. Delve in, and find not just a new book, but a new look on life.
