Readers Groups and The Big Jubilee Read

Big jubilee read

The Big Jubilee Read is a reading for pleasure campaign celebrating great reads from across the Commonwealth to coincide with Her Majesty The Queen’s Jubilee. An expert panel of librarians, booksellers and literature specialists has chosen seventy titles from a “readers’ choice” longlist with
ten books for each decade of Her Majesty The Queen’s reign. The list offers brilliant, beautiful and thrilling writing produced by authors from a wide range of Commonwealth countries over the last seventy years to engage all readers in the discovery and celebration of great books. 
The Big Jubilee Read campaign will be delivered in partnership with BBC Arts and The Reading Agency. It received funding from Arts Council England and is supported by Libraries Connected and the Booksellers Association.

Are you a member of a Readers Group in the city? If you would like to read one of the fantastic titles on the list, please do get in touch! Find out about Coventry Libraries' Readers Groups.

Search the Library catalogue or access the e-book and e-audiobook collection.

The Reading Agency has produced some great resources where you can find book reviews, readers group questions and information about each title on their Reading Groups for Everyone page and BBC Arts also have some more useful information about the books listed.
