Our chosen titles for the Litfest Big Read this year are…

  • Noah’s Gold by Frank Cottrell-Boyce (ages 8-11)
  • Last One to Die by Cynthia Murphy (ages 11-15)

Both of these fantastic authors are speaking at Litfest 2023, and we are encouraging everyone, no matter their age, to come together to read one or both books as part of the Big Read challenge.

By registering to take up the challenge, you will automatically be entered for the prize draw on 28 April, when our two Big Read authors will pick three names each out of a hat for each book.

The 6 winners will each receive 3 paperback books of their choice – each prize worth approximately £30.

Not sure if you want to take up the challenge? Why not come to one of the Big Read events in person or online and hear the author read from and talk about the book first – and then sign up!

Terms and conditions apply.
