The Litfest Big Read has returned for this year’s festival, and we’re excited to hear what you think about our chosen titles: The First Woman, by Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi (for ages 16+) and The Girl Who Became a Tree by Joseph Coelho (for ages 11-16).  We’re challenging everyone to sign up to the Big Read and read one of the books, with the chance to win a prize!

To whet your appetite, here’s a video from Joseph in which he tells you all about his brilliant verse novel, The Girl Who Became a Tree.
