Launch Night

November 27, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm


London’s BIG READ, organised by LIBRARY, is now in its second year and aims to bring London together through reading books that expand our understanding of our community and express the diversity of this great city.

The 2019 theme is female empowerment. June Sarpong, author of Diversify, was the inaugural winner of London’s BIG READ 2018, with a theme of diversity. Over the next ten months, the 2019 campaign is designed to encourage Londoners to get excited about reading, discover new books, and vote for their ‘favourite book of 2019’.

A range of fiction and non-fiction titles, including poetry, middle grade and YA, have been selected to be part of London’s BIG READ 2019. Londoners, and visitors to the capital, will be invited to vote online for their favourite book from World Book Day (March 7, 2019) through to June 30, 2019.
