Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival Big Read 2017 Events
June 10, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
As reader-in-residence at Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival it’s my pleasure to tour the libraries of the north annually, to facilitate a discussion about crime fiction through the Big Read initiative. The idea is to reach out to communities; to encourage literacy by getting everyone to read the same novel simultaneously. I’m delighted to share the news that the 2017 title is Ian Rankin’s Black and Blue, a Rebus novel published by Orion.
